I found this book, now updated for Squeak, to be very helpful in explicating
the object paradigm of smalltalk.


It might seem a wee bit juvenile ,but it was still pretty enlightening.
Everyone says that smalltalk (aka Squeak) is all about
objects sending messages to objects - for me , I find that a helpful notion.
