Does the book offer some examples too? Because Ruby has a quiet pretty syntax. ;-)

Hopefully, by "quiet pretty syntax" you mean a subtle, beautiful language with a low penalty for use...

Seriously, the sample chapter shows Ruby code, text, graphics, and UML. I think we are in good company.

Yes, we include a lot of examples with downloadable code!
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
