I bought this book to help me learn Ruby for my Web Systems Management Module at University. It explains each section so that you can easily understand the commands with lots and lots of examples. Great section on Cookies and Sessions too which I was struggling with before I got this book.

This is an excellent book, and just what I was looking for. Although I have written PHP and TCL code, I didn't know anything about Object Orientated Programming or the Ruby language. And after reading a rails tutorial I was confused by the Ruby commands. But after reading this book, I now understand both. Peter's writing is simple and clear. He has lots of examples and I'm not only enjoying it but learning it quite quickly. But, if you want my advice, get the paperback version. I was part way through the kindle version when it just stopped working. Eventually, amazon support refunded the ebook and I ordered a paperback copy. It was very frustrating because it interrupted my learning with a big gap while I waited for customer support to fix the problem, and then while the postman delivered the paperback version.
