My book, "The Well-Grounded Rubyist" (PDF)

Hi all –

I’m very happy to announce that my book “The Well-Grounded Rubyist” is
now available in PDF. The paper version will follow in a couple of
weeks or so.

TWGR is an expanded, updated, Ruby-only reworking of my 2006 book
“Ruby for Rails”. It targets Ruby 1.9.1, and includes a great deal of
new material (enough that it took me almost a year longer than I
thought it would to write :slight_smile: The book is entirely about the Ruby
language, not Rails. Lots of readers of R4R encouraged me to write a
“just-Ruby” book, and here it is!

You can get more information at: http://manning.com/black2. Enjoy!

Definitely pick this book up if you need to learn the fundamentals of
Ruby, need a refresher, or plan to teach the fundamentals to others.

It’s excellent stuff.

I assume that the lady at the cover page is not Lady Ada Lovelace, right
;)?
Looks strangely familiar though.

Not yet. Manning is ramping up for Kindle production, I believe, so
maybe not too long from now they’ll have one for my book (but I’m just
speculating).
