    1. Dude! There are plenty of resources for learning to code out there, and learning Ruby in particular, that don't involve the instructor constantly belittling you. Look elsewhere.


    2. There are very ugly examples given. With poor fundamentals, a beginner can be misled that those are preferred ways. I discourage anyone from reading this. It's the hard way and ugly way too.


    3. This Ruby tutorial is great for those who are new to programming. True to it title, it is difficult yet effective. It teaches the very basics of learning to program which is essentially, trial and error. I suggest this book for anyone looking to learning how to program outside of a browser. Codecademy is a good resource. It is a great way to get acclimated to the syntax of a programming. However, eventually the student will want to take the "training wheels off" and work in an actual web dev env [...]



    4. A quote from the book: 'Avoid something called "meta-programming" at all costs, as it is too complex to be useful reliably.' This is an unforgivable statement. So much so that it taints the entire book, at least IMO. ActiveRecord, the default ORM behind Rails, leverages meta-programming. Is Rails not reliably useful? Understanding meta-programming will make you a better Rubyist. It is not something to be feared or avoided.


    5. Exercise is needed to get into shape, but as an experienced programmer i already like the shape i'm in.Ruby's many and thus sometimes inconsistent styles irk me, as do sigils, but this book did show me that Ruby classes are much easier than Python ones, and had a nice list of explained symbols in Exercise 37. It's also refreshingly succinct.


    6. I found this book to be a great introduction to Ruby. I have to learn it for work and this book gave me the basics up to unit testing in a quick and digestible format. Not sure how good it would be for people new to programming but as someone who knows Python and C++ pretty well this book was great.


    7. If you are a programmer already (I come from a heavy Java background) this book will decode some of the magic of functional programming and Ruby. But it is definitely not "the hard way" lol. You can finish the book in a day and a half. I recommend just giving it a quick scan.


    8. When I read it the author still seems to have been working on completing it; half the chapters were missing; but it's still a great read and opens up possibilities to a lot of further reading. I like the style of the Learn Code the Hard Way books - they are direct and straightforward, with less talk and small chunks of code, followed by extra credit/ homework - and sometimes, that's just the kind of book you need.


    9. Really solid introduction to Ruby, and to programming in general. I feel that Zed's emphasis on meta-learning (that is, how to think about learning how to code) makes the book far more effective than many others that focus merely on the code itself. Highly recommended for beginners and for those new to Ruby.


    10. PRO's:Good book. Author try to use proactive approach. Good exercises.Learning by doing is a motto of this book. I really like itN's: #very subjective thoughRspec is not covered (only Test::Unit) Sinatra, not RoR. Too much stuff around one quite controversial game.


    11. A really good introduction to programming that happens to use Ruby for the language.Not so useful to polyglot developers looking to pick up Ruby. Also tends to veer towards Python idioms rather than those of Ruby at times.Still, a great book for those who haven't programmed before.


    12. It's very good book for any one want to know how to program, and it depends on practice and giving you more exercises I like this way because it's useful and focus on doing things more than save things!


    13. This book is great for beginner programmers and experienced programmers that want to pick up the Ruby programming language. I highly recommend it.


    14. I think this is a great book, includes basic language syntax, humor, and 2 projects, that last thing makes you want to learn even more and discover things before you get to that part of the book.




    15. An incredible book. I am glad I came across it on my quest to teach myself Ruby.Recommended to all ruby/rails beginners.


    16. Great approach to teaching a language from scratch but also worthwhile to the seasoned programmer to go through the motions as a refresher. The whole series is fantastic.
