Ruby and Ocaml

Not sure whether I'll learn either of these properly, but so far Ruby is winning simply because of this book:

Why's (Poignant) Guide to Ruby

Fox #1: Have you noticed this book is basically written by a lunatic?
Fox #2:Yup.

The licensing for the book also permits it's use for cigarette advertising, which may come in handy...

The other (slightly more distant) contender is Objective CAML.

Dabblers and Blowhards

An interesting counterpoint to Hackers and Painters. I'm not entirely convinced, but it does make quite a few fair points.
