From Barnes & NobleThe Rails Way is about building polished, robust Rails-based applications that delight both enterprise IT organizations and users.
This book isn't "just" a detailed guide to the Rails API, though it certainly accomplishes that (not insignificant) task. Obie Fernandez also offers hard-earned best practices for everything from managing complex program flows and Rails routing through testing and performance optimization.
Fernandez introduces open source libraries and third-party plug-ins that make Rails even more convenient and productive. He offers high-level coverage of program design, as well as detailed real-world techniques for everything from authentication to email integration.
