Recommended Ruby, Rails, REST books!

I have read the following books (some more closely than others). I'd recommend each of them for various reasons. All have been helpful in understanding many of the pragmatic concepts baked into Rails, understanding the Ruby programming language, and web development in general. I hope you have a chance to check them out on your own path of learning!
