For a second book I'd say use Jose Valim's Crafting Rails Application. He is the author of Devise and on the core team. It covers a ton of useful topics like writing generators, railties, rendering stack, active model, nosql examples and more. That's another 2 weeks and 50$ more to learn Rails.
I'd replace that with "Rails Antipatterns", which is of more immediate value to almost any Rails developer, particularly new ones.
It's a great book:
I'd also thoroughly recommend Eloquent Ruby by Russ Olsen.
And just to round things out, to learn more about testing, I like the rspec book, but it's a bit of a beast, so also check out Noel Rappins "Rails Test Prescriptions"
The Rspec book:
Rails test prescriptions:
Side note, I haven't yet read Chad's Rails recipes:
Any opinions on it?
