I really liked “The Ruby Way”, and find myself going back to it.
While I think some of it is filler (how to reverse a string, etc.),
it has some good tidbits throughout and I find myself saying “oh,
neat!” as I read it.

I haven’t read “The Ruby Way”, so I cannot say anything it,
but I want to say a few words about The Ruby Developer’s Guide :
this is definitely the must for a Ruby coder. Maybe this
is not the book to read from the beginning to the end,
but it is a nice intro to Ruby as technoplogy - GUI, DBs,
XML, parser generators, etc.
