Pragmatic Programmer's Programming Ruby Edition 3 (or whatever the
latest
is)

It's a pretty good way to get started.

I would strongly recommend David Black's "The Well Grounded Rubyist"
http://www.manning.com/black2/

It will hit the shelves soon, I imagine, and the quality of the MEAP
drafts are great.

I also recommend Greg's Ruby Best Practices as well, once you've learned
the basics of Ruby.
