Anyway, the book (and the course as well) is a very good reference on current effective practices on Software Engineering. If you read it, it might work to keep you up to date with good software development practices, taking Software as a Service and Agile Development as it's core topics.
Both the book and the course are meant for people with more-than-rookie programming skills, so you won't get too much from it if you're a still beginner. Anyway, you might use it as reference, and it will give you good and useful information.
It's not a book on programming, it's a book on Software Engineering, even though it uses Ruby on Rails as the language-and-framework set for explaining all the concepts and practices covered. The main reason why the book and course features Ruby on Rails instead of other languages and frameworks is the fact that, according to the authors' opinion, it's a perfectly suited technology (maybe the best) for fast and productive Agile Development.
On a personal note, I spent a lot of time unemployed last year trying to retrain myself to be a better software engineer. I took both CS169.1x and CS169.2x, and I bought the book as well, which went into depth about a lot of topics that the lectures could not. I wanted to move away from dowdy old tech stacks and work with "startup" technology, but it was overwhelming trying to find a resource to help put together all of the disparate ideas into a cohesive whole. For example, one book might do a great job at explaining object-oriented design and various design patterns, but didn't explain REST APIs or the benefits/challenges of SaaS as an architecture. Another might explain agile methodologies, but didn't talk much about TDD/BDD, or what makes a test a unit test and not an integration test.
I am now an iOS developer, and even though that's a far different world than the Rails/SaaS stuff covered in the book and in the MOOC, I still think this is most directly responsible for my successful transition. I am a better software developer for it.
I just can recommend it to anybody who wants to learn about agile software development, cloud computing (especially SaaS), the MVC architecture
and get experience with the Ruby on Rails (RoR) framework, as they choose it for software development. It is not for Ruby beginners, but at the beginning of the course they recommend some good sources to get warm-up with Ruby (and RoR).
I really warmly recommend the book and the course to anybody, you will enjoy it!
