[LRUG] Converting from the dark side

Hello all,

I'm a bit of a dinosaur, having started with COBOL through Visual Basic 3,
classic asp and then onto the asp.net stack.
But, I'm really interested in moving over to using Ruby.
I supported an old Rails 2.3 app a couple of years ago and liked the syntax
and flexibilty.
I have a new work opportunity where Ruby appears to be a good candidate for
the product.
Has anyone else made a similar move?
My main question is what one book would you recommend to start with.
Is it the Pickaxe book?
I'm sure it'll take a while to change mindset to appreciate metaprogramming

All responses are much appreciated
