The Book Of Ruby (free edition) is a free tutorial to the Ruby language. It contains 425 pages in 20 chapters. It is provided in the form of a PDF document in which each chapter is accompanied by ready-to-run source code for all the examples. There is also an Introduction which explains how to use the source code in Ruby In Steel or any other editor/IDE of your choice plus appendices and an index.
Note that The Book Of Ruby is an in-depth guide to Ruby. For a much simpler guide to the principal features of the Ruby language, there is also the free eBook, The Little Book Of Ruby, by the same author.
