Good book but too many misprints...

By solarflare

Comments about oreilly Rails Cookbook:

An exceptionally useful and good book.

The only drawback seems to be the number of printing mistakes - just the correction of the misprints will make another book as thick.

Anyone wanting to buy this book, wait for the next edition - especially beginners. It makes for a very frustating reading with all the misprints.
