i'm really interested in RoR. I've already seen some very "well-rated" books about it and i'd like to know what's the differential of your book face the others. Thank's!!!

Well, judging by the book's title and by the editorial reviews on amazon the book is concerned mainly with reporting, and it's not just another RoR book.

Alaa is right - my book talks specifically about using Ruby for business reporting. It covers extracting data, analyzing it, and then displaying it. For example, it shows how to use ActiveRecord and various graph libraries to represent data in a ton of different ways: in a PDF, as a desktop application, as part of a web application, and more.

Take it easy,
