If you're not familiar with the Ruby language I would also recommend "The Pickaxe" also from Pragmatic Bookshelf: http://pragprog.com/...ng-ruby-1-9-2-0

I used TeamTreeehouse to do Ruby foundations and made a sample rails project. I recently started it over again to refresh my knowledge and help me not over complicate sometimes.

 

I have the Pragmatic book too which is good!

For ruby try codeschool, and for rails you can start with Rails for zombies. I like the book from railstutorials too, but is a little harder is you are a total newbie.

+1 RailsTutorial if you have a little more experience. It's very thorough and you will understand a TON afterwards. Worth going through a second time as well. Ruby Koans, although not a book, are also good.

Highly consider folks having a look at this if you've used the RailsApp Project.
