Agile Web development with Rails is a great book to get started with. The book works through building a RoR app. Just follow along with each chapter and that should get him off to a great start.

Good luck,
Gautam

My 15 y/o son wants to learn Ruby, Rails.
He doesn't program at all.  Great at math/science, though. Visually oriented.

Any suggestions on ways for him to start?

Thanks!
