Ruby recommended book

Hi Guys,

I am loving how easy ruby is and how quickly it can work some of its magic. But I have also been a much quick learner from a book in hand. Can you recommend a decent Basic + Advance book for me ?

I recommend reading The Well Grounded Rubyist (2nd Edition that came out officially last month).

I recommend Learn to Program by Chris Pine. It's how I got my start into Ruby.

I liked "Programming Ruby 1.9 & 2.0 (4th edition): The Pragmatic Programmers' Guide". Kevin's suggestion is also very good, although I haven't seen the second edition yet.
