Rails • Asked by Catherine Puspita
I have watched few video tutorials of gorails and codeschools. I think it will be better if I read a book. Can anyone suggest me a ruby on rails 5 book which will helpful for beginner? 

Rails Tutorial by Hartl is one that springs to mind. I also recommend Agile Development with Rails by Sam Ruby and Dave Thomas and DHH. After you build a few things, you will quickly get the hang of it


You can read Ruby on Rails Tutorial: Learn Web Development with Rails (4th Edition). On the book Michael Hartl had developed a twitter app. He has also released videos with this book. Hope these will helpful for you.

I third The Ruby on Rails Tutorial, fantastic book! You can even follow it online at - https://www.railstutorial.org
But the book is also well worth buying for reference.

I also found Rails: Novice to Ninja quite good - https://www.sitepoint.com/premium/books/rails-novice-to-ninja

Also, check packt publishing and their free ebooks - https://www.packtpub.com/packt/offers/free-learning - they covers many different languages.
