Editorial Reviews

Review

"R>Eloquent Ruby is like programming in Ruby itself: fun, surprisingly deep, and you'll find yourself wishing it was always done this way. Wherever you are in your Ruby experience from novice to Rails developer, this book is a must read."

--Ethan Roberts

Owner, Monkey Mind LLC

 

"Eloquent Ruby lives up to its name. It's a smooth introduction to Ruby that's both well organized and enjoyable to read, as it covers all the essential topics in the right order. This is the book I wish I'd learned Ruby from."

--James Kebinger

Senior Software Engineer, PatientsLikeMe

"Ruby's syntactic and logical aesthetics represent the pinnacle for elegance and beauty in the ALGOL family of programming languages. Eloquent Ruby is the perfect book to highlight this masterful language and Russ's blend of wit and wisdom is certain to entertain and inform."

--Michael Fogus

Contributor to the Clojure programming language and author of The Joy of Clojure
