For Ruby books, checkout my page here:

* Recommended Ruby Books (

I have not updated the Rails page yet, but you should be fine with:

* Agile Web Development with Rails, Third Edition (

Other books you may want to consider afterward are:

* The Art of Rails (

* Enterprise Rails (

I like "Enterprise Rails". It's a rather contrarian Rails book in that it doesn't hew to the Rails anti-DB orthodoxy. It's clearly written and has a good example that evolves over the course of the book. It's meant to be a 2nd Rails book, after you're familiar with the framework.
