Description - Pro Active Record by Chad Pytel

Pro ActiveRecord for Ruby helps you take advantage of the full power of your database engine from within your Ruby programs and Rails applications. It walks you through every step from the basics of getting and installing the ActiveRecord library to working with legacy schema to using features specific to each of today's most popular database engines, including Oracle, MS SQL, and MySQL. You'll come to a deep understanding of ActiveRecord that will enable you to truly exploit all that Ruby, Rails, and your chosen database platform have to offer.
