The way that can be named is not the true Way.

Lao Tse, Tao Te Ching

The title of this book is The Ruby Way. This is a title that begs for a disclaimer.

It has been my aim to align this book with the philosophy of Ruby as well as I could. That has also been the aim of the other contributors. Credit for success must be shared with these others, but the blame for any mistakes must rest solely with me.

Of course, I can't presume to tell you with exactness what the spirit of Ruby is all about. That is primarily for Matz to sayand I think even he would have difficulty communicating all of it in words.

In short, The Ruby Way is only a book, but the Ruby Way is the province of the language creator and the community as a whole. This is something difficult to capture in a book.

Still, I have tried in this introduction to pin down a little of the ineffable spirit of Ruby. The wise student of Ruby will not take it as authoritative.
