Ruby's book list is out of date

Hello all,
I was snooping about the Ruby site the other day (OK, like two weeks
ago) when I got bored, and I noticed the book page is out of date. I
e-mailed the webmaster e-mail address, but nothing has changed.

  1. From Java to Ruby is out now (rather than Coming Soon).
  2. Ruby Phrasebook is also out.
  3. Rails Cookbook looks to be out also.
  4. Ruby Quickly has changed to Hacking with Ruby which is probably
    changing again…
  5. There are a number of books that are coming soon and new in print
    that aren’t on there (e.g., the PragProg’s Paypal+Ruby book, my Ruby
    book, Apress’s complete Ruby/Rails line other than Beginning Ruby,
    Rails for Java Developers…).

Who maintains this section? I can e-mail them directly if that would
be more helpful.

Thanks,
Jeremy

Nearly, it goes to the printer in mid December so should be in
bookstores before too long.

HTH,

I have addressed these.

  1. There are a number of books that are coming soon and new in print
    that aren’t on there (e.g., the PragProg’s Paypal+Ruby book, my Ruby
    book, Apress’s complete Ruby/Rails line other than Beginning Ruby,
    Rails for Java Developers…).

Email me the books you would like added and where. I’ll get them in
there. Please view the page source and send them to me in that
format, so I can dump them right in.

Thanks.

Is it really? I’ve not seen it yet, and amazon says January.

I assume Jeremy meant it’s now available as a Rough Cut:

ruby-doc.org has maintained a book list for a while now:

http://ruby-doc.org/bookstore

If folks are aware of Ruby books not listed, please let me know.

Aahh. Good enough then. (I’m still looking forward to grabbing a
paper copy, I like the phrasebook format.)

There are a few other books that could go on these book lists:

finished):

This is the book page you were referring to, right Jeremy?
