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.
