I drove out to a Barnes and Nobel and picked my book up off the shelf, Ruby Phrasebook. It's a little angst-inducing to hold a book in print with your name on it. While it's my first book and it's not exactly a huge accomplishment, it's still the sum of a lot of work. Anyway, if you know someone in the market for books on the Ruby programming language, tell them you know someone who wrote a book on the subject. I would especially appreciate any reviews—I'm not aware of any out there, yet.
