Wrapping up the final section of Eloquent Ruby by Russ Olsen, I'm very happy I have this book on my shelf. I know I will refer to it again and again, not only in this program but in my future career.
Since I still am so new to programming, there is a lot of the book that feels just out of reach. Every week as I gain experience, I plan on cracking open the book to help solidify concepts and instill the best practices Russ talks about.
I highly recommend this book to any Ruby programmer, though someone with a little experience under their belt will benefit more than a total newbie.
