Have a look at the video on my web page

I think that using Smalltalk you can really deeply understand OOP. I  
realized that lot of a my students which know java, still learn a lot  
when following my lectures on OOP. This is the sad aspect of OOP  
everybody can teach it (in a not so well
way) or understand it. Now to deeply understand it, using the  
inspector, debugger of Smalltalk is great.

To learn Squeak I suggest you to pick a small project and do it and  
ask question.

I like Smalltalk by Example.
