O'Reilly can be quite fast.

Yes, though Matz's book is quite terse (and has a number of 
proofreading and translation problems).

I find "Programming Ruby" to be much more comfortable, as it includes 
both reference material and explanation without spending too much 
time on tutorials. There is an application (a jukebox) that is used 
as a context for discussions in various places, but there is also a 
concise description of the language and its libraries.
