What about this one?:

It is for Rails 4.0. Has anyone had a chance to go through this book & the screencasts? Is the rails tutorials good for beginners?

Most rails tutorials are unfortunately outdated. Rails 4 in action is a good book which is coming out.

I like a few books on Rails and Ruby, though I haven't read them all cover to cover:

Agile Web Development with Rails
Ruby on Rails 3 Tutorial
Beginning Rails 3
Ruby Best Practices
Metaprogramming Ruby

This is just my quick list, but there are many more books, which are great and well written; please feel free to diagree with this list or append the list. Sorry, these aren't linked, I wrote this email on the train, but you generally can't go wrong with 'The Pragmatic Programmers' or 'Apress' books. Just mu opinion :)

The Dummies book for beginners on ruby feels more like lets talk about whats we can do with ruby over hey lets work together and make ruby.

For a list of resources (working from Ruby up to Rails), I'd recommend Flatiron School's prework. I attended in 2012, and the Prework is a great, open-source list of areas to study for full stack RoR.

Also, Practical Object-Oriented Design in Ruby by Sandi Metz as a great, accessible book for becoming a better programmer. There's a related GoRuCo 2011 Talk video that I would also recommend.

Also does anyone have any resources we can use to learn to program other than codecademy

I am looking to learn RoR with others who are also trying to learn this. If anyone is open to learning/studying RoR during the summer, please message me. We could meet at places with wifi, go through some video courses / ebooks, and get good at RoR.
