Which Ruby book are you referring to? "Programming Ruby" (The 
"Pickaxe" book) (by Dave Thomas and Andy Hunt) or Matz's O'Reilly 
book "Ruby in a Nutshell"?

Any book effort will have to deal with the fact that Squeak is very 
much a moving target, especially in the UI and Media implementation 
areas. Aren't there already examples in Mark's first book that don't 
work with 3.2?
