I wrote three of the "days" in "Teach Yourself Ruby in 21 Days", and I
went out of my way to make them excruciatingly painful, so you can
safely read it :-)

But seriously... that book did get a lot of "not a typical book of its
genre" remarks, for which I take a mini-bow but mostly give a big nod
to Mark Slagell, the chief author.
