    I ve meant to buy this book for ages I wish there were books like this for every programming language It s very readable and approachable Not dry zzz material at all Contrary to what he says though, you cannot really be into it unless you re peeking at the C source General lessons are learnable here that apply to lots of languages too.

    Great information about Ruby Nice diagrams as well as experiments that show cool Ruby commands to peek into its internals Highly recommend if you are interested in programming languages.

    Learned things that the Ruby reference does not explain well enough Also learned general software engineering concepts, not just Ruby Does not cover the parser in depth, but that s expected as bison is quite complex.
