The book is a must if you ever need to program Ruby. It is so nicely written and all the concepts are given due weightage.
The examples used are very descriptive and the authors have done their best for even a newbie to Ruby to understand the book and use it to become a good programmer.

The book is very good and is a must in your cupboard. Maybe you need to buya new cupboard 'cause this doesn't really fit in with the Harry Potter books.
Some core issues have not been given due importance but that can be understood as the book promises to deliver a lot, and does. The book deals with many wide aspects of Ruby and thus, some things have been missed out.

I'd say that everyone who has ever used Linux should read this book. Doesn't matter if you are a professional or a novice user.
One should always remember that Linux would not be what it is had it not been for the GPL, and we have RMS to thank for that.
You can also contribute to this book. As this book is released under the GFDL, they are accepting patches just like we would with any free software program. Accepted changes will be posted electronically and will eventually be incorporated into future printed versions of this work.
