5.0 out of 5 stars Good for Ruby 21 Mar. 2015
By R S Shaffer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Practical tips to help you become a better programmer. Even better if you're using Ruby. :)

IMO there is a real void when it comes to books on Ruby programming. ok, I understand the language. But how do I actually write good object-oriented programs using Ruby? This book answers some of those questions. Well worth the cost and the effort to read it. It will stay on my shelf at home as a welcome reference rather than my shelves at work where just anyone could walk off with it. They will just have to buy their own copy.
5.0 out of 5 stars A must read book 21 Oct. 2016

Awesome book for any Ruby programmer. It goes from very basic until advanced level in a very nice pace (which makes it very easy to read) and it has the bonus of explaining how the GC works and why you should care about it. It changed how I think and write Ruby code on daily basis for sure a must read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended for intermediate Rubyists. 25 Oct. 2014
By Ernest - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've read a lot of books about Ruby, and I was a little bit concerned - whether I really need another one. As I like the idea of "Effective" series, I decided to give it a try. Bingo!

Concise, insightful, and fun to read - I really like it!
