Media praise for Head First Rails
"I suggested Head First Rails to a friend before I even finished it. He was asking me questions that I didn't have time to answer, and I knew the book could explain better than I...I have been waiting for this book to be written and available for at least a year and a half. This was the first beginning Rails book that I found that didn't assume I was transitioning from a background in PHP. I have been spending time with the Ruby and the Rails community for close to 2 years now and am grateful that I finally have an explanation of the topic that is accessible for me. "

"As with any good teacher, this OReilly series attacks the material from a variety of angles. If you know it, or youre a quick learner, you can breeze right through. If youre like me, they try everything possible to make things comprehensible."

"I got hooked on reading Head First Rails on Safari. I'm already on page 307 of 417, not bad hein?...There's a problem with other books in that they give you a clear path... but don't make you 'fudge' around at all, so in the end you can't find your way if you get lost a little bit in the Rails forest. In a HEAD FIRST book, you are forced to fudge around, so in the end, you will always find your way."
