Review

"R>Eloquent Ruby is like programming in Ruby itself: fun, surprisingly deep, and you'll find yourself wishing it was always done this way. Wherever you are in your Ruby experience from novice to Rails developer, this book is a must read."

--Ethan Roberts

Owner, Monkey Mind LLC

 

"Eloquent Ruby lives up to its name. It's a smooth introduction to Ruby that's both well organized and enjoyable to read, as it covers all the essential topics in the right order. This is the book I wish I'd learned Ruby from."

--James Kebinger

Senior Software Engineer, PatientsLikeMe

www.monkeyatlarge.com

 

"Ruby's syntactic and logical aesthetics represent the pinnacle for elegance and beauty in the ALGOL family of programming languages. Eloquent Ruby is the perfect book to highlight this masterful language and Russ's blend of wit and wisdom is certain to entertain and inform."

--Michael Fogus

Contributor to the Clojure programming language and author of The Joy of Clojure

5.0 out of 5 stars must-have for ruby novice 29 October 2013
By Amir - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
i'm a web and middle-tier developer with a strong background in c# and java and have been teaching myself ruby for about a year now (in the hopes of soon building rails apps.) I started w/ (extremely utilitarian, but extremely dry) "the ruby programming laguage" (flanagan, matsumoto) and that was a good way to get familiar with syntax and basic structure (and is a great tool to have on the shelf), but i often found myself scratching my head while sifting through code on github (which is a quick way to get really really confused if you're new to ruby) ...

this book elucidates A LOT of the basic ruby-isms that i've encountered in the wild and really helped me build some foundation. a basic, but useful, intro to blocks, metaprogramming, and many other ruby-isms. a must-have for those learning, and/or looking to solidify their ruby.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for those who already have a solid foundation in Ruby. 7 November 2015
By Patrick Worlds - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a truly wonderful book. I wouldn't recommend it to people who don't know the basics or have a solid understanding of the core API (the author doesn't either, in fact he says so in the "Who is this book for" block). However, if you've got the basics down and wish to polish your code and/or learn a some interesting techniques to making your life easier when writing, I'd highly recommend this book. The author explains everything in clear to-the-point way instead of dancing around the point with pages of filler. It's a long read if you're going cover to cover but it's well worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good reference for some . . . 1 January 2016
By John D. Sayle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Overall, Russ Olsen's Eloquent Ruby is a good book. I feel that the book would be fantastic for anyone coming to Ruby with an in-depth knowledge of another programming language.

My main reason for giving it four stars instead of five is that this edition is a bit dated (it focuses on Ruby 1.9) and the content while broad in scope is not as in depth as I'd hoped for. Also, it should be noted that Eloquent Ruby is written more like a reference book than a "how-to" or textbook (ie - while Russ Olsen does offer real world examples at the end of chapters, this book is not written with the express purpose of teaching you how to code using the Ruby programming language, or giving you multiple or one large scale "project" to work through with the authors guidance).

5.0 out of 5 stars Teaches idiomatic Ruby; an easy read 18 March 2014
By Flekstpor Drufan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading this book, and found it to be a useful adjunct to other learning materials. The technical content is very clearly presented, with just the right amount of detail to get the point across, and not much more. The author's tone is somewhat light-hearted, without being cloyingly jocular. Where the book differs from most tutorials is that it focuses on teaching Ruby that is not just "correct", but also idiomatic. I now understand better how, for example, Rails is able to work its various "magic" using various Ruby idioms. That said, I'm not entirely comfortable with the enthusiasm with which the author embraces some of Ruby's "magical" capabilities. I wonder how easy it might be to get carried away with some of these idioms and end up writing a bunch of difficult-to-understand, difficult-to-maintain code. However, insofar as this sort of jazz is part of idiomatic Ruby, I suppose the author is fulfilling his mandate by promoting it; so I hesitate to deduct a star just on account of my own scruples here. On the whole, I recommend this book - especially if you are coming from a more traditional object-oriented language (C++, Java) - and have yet to appreciate just how flexible (sometimes worryingly so) Ruby really is.

5.0 out of 5 stars for ruby beginners I can't recommend this enough 28 May 2013
By Bobkat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
After you have gotten down the basics of Ruby syntax this is the next step. Much of the ruby community I've found likes to talk about the esthetics of the code. They not only want to write good working code but want it to be beautiful. When I first got into Ruby I asked a senior programmer about style and his answer was to read the ruby discussion lists and I would eventually pick it up. I did not, this may be a reflection on me but after six months of trying to wrap my head around Ruby I was still just not getting what I considered weird rubyisms. Much of this book is about explaining style and why your actually writing better code when you do things the ruby way. It's about using the somewhat unusual features of the language to build better working code. It also spends a fair amount of text explaining the dangers of each feature and how best to mitigate danger while still keeping the power.
