5.0 out of 5 stars Showed me how the 'magic' happens!, 12 Oct 2013
Not a book for Ruby beginners, but once you're familiar with the basics and want to understand how it all works then this is the book for you.

The separate appendix of 'spells' is a master-stroke, great reference material. Until I read this book I thought that Ruby used magic. I can now see the elegant design that allows the 'magic' to work.
