The Pickaxe book, named for the tool on the cover, is the definitive reference to Ruby, a highly-regarded, fully object-oriented language. This Second Edition has more than 200 pages of new content, and substantial enhancements to the original, covering all the new and improved language features of 1.8 and standard library modules.
