My Ruby Book now available in .mobi and .epub formats

My Ruby book has been available since 2006 in .pdf format. It’s now available, completely updated for Ruby 1.9, in .mobi and .epub formats.

Ruby eBook The Ruby eBook covers Ruby 1.9 and has all the Core Ruby programming topics on the site. This Ruby eBook, is the ideal companion for students in the Online Ruby Class at and provides an overview of Ruby programming.

The eBook is over 230 pages and is in both .mobi (for Amazon’s Kindle owners) and .epub (for owners of the iPad, iPhone/iPod Touch, Sony 505/700, and other ebook readers) formats. For a limited time, the cost of this eBook (both formats together) is only US$ 5 and is being collected to help RubyLearning maintain the site and the eBook, and provide quality content to you. Please pay by Paypal to satish [at] Once you have paid, please email me at the same email id and I will email you the epub and mobi formats of the Ruby eBook.

Update: Based on your feedback, I will bundle all three formats i.e. .pdf, .mobi and .epub for US$ 15. The normal price of just the .pdf is US$ 19.95.

Here’s what one satisfied customer, Thomas Johan Eggum from Norway has to say:

After years with Java development and some various experience with the framework Ruby on Rails, I wanted to get a broader knowledge with the Ruby language. I stumbled over Satish’s website, and decided to read the book “The Ultimate Guide To Ruby Programming”. I found the book easy to read and very efficient with regards to covering the essentials of Ruby. There is no confusing overhead, and the material is presented in an informative way. After each chapter there is a summary and an exercise part, making it easy to verify progress. I can highly recommend this book for those interested in learning Ruby. I also found the book helpful when studying towards the certification “Ruby Association Certified Ruby Programmer Silver”.

The Kindle version is also available on Amazon.

Please let me know what you think about the eBook once you get around to reading it.

I recommend getting Kindle and be done with it. It doesn’t matter which device you are on. While iBooks might be nice, Apple hasn’t released the book store to all regions (India for example) and there is no iBook for the Mac. Kindle has readers for all platforms and the license allows you to read the book on all platforms that you own.
