"For a beginner to Rails this is a good asset."
"Overall, I recommend this book to the type of reader described above. As the authors state in their preface, you will not be a Rails guru after reading it; but you be a lot closer towards it than you were before this book was read."

"The exercises and review questions in each chapter are interesting, instructive, and thought-provoking."
--Michael Kleper, The Kleper Report on Digital Publishing, Vol. 17 No. 4/5, July/October 2012
"Learning Rails 3 is an excellent guide for Ruby on Rails newcomers. And those already working with Rails can learn from it, too."
--Si Dunn, Sagecreek Productions
"Most Ruby on Rails books take a software developer's approach, making them difficult to follow for web designers and developers without a lot of programming background. Learning Rails takes a different approach, starting with building web pages and gradually introducing the full software model. It's gentle, but not dumbed-down. In our screencast course, we've found this to be a highly effective way for people to learn Rails. Even if you're not a software developer by training, this book will open up the power of Rails for you."
--Michael Slater, www.BuildingWebApps.com
"Learning a new web framework (and language) can be difficult, but Simon and Edd take it one step at a time and explain everything you need to know to get started with Rails."
