    Book recommendation?

    Hi,
    I am interested in yahoo's yui and jack slocum's work.
    Anything Ajax or Ruby on Rails.
    I have "wung it" and implemented things but feel like I should crack open a book and learn it from the beginning. Who knows what poor assumptions I've made along the way by winging it.
    Thanks

    Free is great, thanks

    BTW I love O'Rielly but I see his "definitive" Javascript book is 900 pages. That seems like too many for me. 2 kids under 3, quiet time is limitted

    I am sure you can just get a torrent of it then. It was free at one point so it will always be free.
