Best Book 4 RoR

+1 vote

Is there a great book for RoR. I am looking for a book with a step by step approach and by PROJECTS!!
RoR needs to be 'practiced', and I didn't find those WORKING PROJECTS.

Am I dreaming or is this paper exists. All the books on amazon/flipkart are not amazing. They talks only about theory. Theory is fine, I mean this is RoR.

Michael Hartl's "Rails Tutorial" is generally considered a great book, not only for RoR but also more than enough Ruby to really understand it, plus good habits like testing (and tools to do it with). Best of all, it's free to use online! If you like hardcopy or ebooks you can get it that way too. See for more info.

Rails Tutorial walks you through a fairly complete project. Other than that, though, "scratch your itch". Can you think of a relatively simple web-app that you wish existed? Maybe something similar to something that already exists, but with some feature added or change? Create it! To paraphrase Gandhi, write the app you wish to see in the world. :-)

I am looking for a book that will not teach c+, but will teach design patterns and practices such as RAII and etc. Does such a book exist that is recommended? More importantly (though doubtful), does something
like this exist for c+11? I assume that c+11 being as new as it is, there are probably some debates on specific techniques and they may not be as set in stone or evolved as c+03.
