Agile Web Development with Rails

Agile Web Development with Rails made for very inspiring reading. Ruby on Rails goes in the opposite direction of where most people are taking web development these days: simplifying development as much as possible.

Although it is certainly designed around commercial reliability and scalability, whether or not Rails will really take off in the commercial world is open to speculation: Rails itself could be a nicer programming language, a lot goes on at runtime behind the scenes that it would be nice to know about.

That doesn't matter though, I still recommend reading this book, it is really relaxing and enjoyable to read and it makes you want to use Rails.

My opinion of where Rails will go? Well it should definitely be a seriously considered framework for people currently programming web applications in PHP!
