I think Cooper darts from concept to concept too quickly, in an effort to keep the reader interested in building something. Sometimes a reader will encounter a certain Ruby concept several times, over several chapters, before that concept has received sufficient treatment to sink in. I especially thought that the ramifications of the "everything is an object" concept in Ruby were underdocumented, and only really intelligible several chapters after Cooper thought he had covered it.

Also, I have to discourage the purchase of the Kindle version. Though body text will scale up, code snippets in the examples will NOT. The code is simply not legible on my Kindle Touch.

Cooper is not without talent as a technical writer, but I think in his efforts to make things accessible, he lost sight of the importance of conducting a structured analysis of the language. That, combined with serious legibility issues, forced me to send this one back.

I have found this book o be very well written, organized and easy to follow, regardless of of the reader's programming experience and/or Ruby knowledge. I have been programming for over 30 years, in several other languages, but this is my first attempt at learning an OO language. I recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn Ruby.

Programming for dummies in plain English! Just what I've been looking for.

I first tried Objective-C Programming: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide (Big Nerd Ranch Guides) by Aaron Hillegass. Couple of chapters down the road I quit. Then I picked Programming in Objective-C (4th Edition) (Developer's Library) by Stephen G. Kochan. The same story. Both books claim to be for beginners without any previous programming experience. Well, that's true for the first couple of chapters. Then it gets SOOOO technical instantaneously that the only thing you keep thinking about is "Where the hell did that come from?..." or "Are you guys nuts to expect me to comprehend this?". Maybe you eventually come to understand it by the end of the book, but it kills the fun so ruthlessly - life's to short to torture yourself like that.

This book explains complex concepts in a simple way, using everyday stuff to illustrate the author's point so vividly! That's very nice. The style of writing is hilarious. That's pretty cool too. Thanks a lot, Peter!

This's my first book on ruby and it's very good and i recommend it to
anyone who want to learn ruby and make a solid foundation of it, the
most interesting thing about this book is that it cover alot of different
topics , from the language itself to the developement cycle and
documentation generation and testing to working with files and
databases web frameworks and web developement to GUI desktop to
applications deployement and packaging and drawing a big picture for
the beginner ruby programmers all with easy and meaningfull examples
to explain the theory. it's not a reference that covers every method and
class in ruby in solid manner and it's not the beginners book that leave
you nowhere, it's the best book for beginners that will take their hands
to the first step to be proficient ruby programmer . absolutely
recommended for beginners .

Well written with pleanty of examples. It assumes that you know nothing about Ruby . Takes you from the classics "Hello World" through to programs. A bit rpetative in spots, but that can be good too. As a neophyte to programming I felt it well worth the time to study becsue the study had a positive outcome.
Definately written for someone dipping into programming . I woluld recommend it for beginners or just for a glimpse of how to program.
