have a look at the books available at:

I suggest you to read smalltalk by example and
Smalltalk An Introduction to Application Development using VisualWorks, 
and the art and science
of Smalltalk. Have fun and do not hesitate to ask question.

as you are in web stuff you should have a look at SeaSide
