Hmmm..... I haven't had a chance to read through it all but what
about "Squeak: A Quick Trip to ObjectLand" by Gene Korienek, Tom Wrensch,
& Doug Dechow ( ISBN: 0201731142 )? I ran across it in Borders last week.
It's a bright yellow. And comes with a copy of Squeak (3.0) on CD.
(Oddly enough, Amazon/Borders.com seems to think if you buy this book
you'll want to buy one on Dolphin Smalltalk when they should be plugging
one of the other Squeak books, both of which are mentioned in the
"For further reading section" of this book.)
