Despite its unfortunate name that unnecessarily limits the audience which might find it useful, you might want to check out http://www.rustforrubyists.com/

It's basically a tutorial for people coming from typeless, pointer-less dynamic languages, whereas the official Rust tutorial assumes familiarity with the concepts that a C (or C++, C#, Objective-C) developer would know

My love of alliteration has certainly harmed my audiences. Oh well. :/

I am not a rubyist and I almost dismissed your book because of the title because I assumed it would lean heavily on concepts from ruby with which I would not be familiar and therefore be no more enlightening than the official rust tutorial. i.e. I assumed it would teach one foreign concept based on another foreign concept.

Originally I envisioned more of that, it just didn't shape up that way.

Hopefully I will have something better and more generic near the 1.0 release ;)

Awesome. Looking forward to it.
