Have you looked at HelpTopic? It would be nice to document Squeak in 
HelpTopic first and then export it to other formats like LaTeX to 
produce a book. Something like Quick Guides [1] of Etoys.

It is easier to keep such topics in sync with releases while a book 
tends to fall behind over the years and has to be refreshed. Also, code 
snippets can be run from the topic itself without having to copy-paste 
into a Workspace.
