"The strong point of the Rails Cookbook is its breadth. It provides a lot of examples...Rails Cookbook does not go into as much depth of explanation as the recipes in Rails Recipes by Chad Fowler. But that is okay. There are more of them and most of the time Im not reading the explanations as much as looking for code samples. In that way, Rails Cookbook is great."
--Steve Odom, Niblets
"...a guide packed with recipes for success from the basics of installing and using Rails to the latest applications.
