I'm sure other folks will point you at the free books that Stephan Ducasse

more up your alley. It is VisualWorks-specific. I have both Smalltalks,
visualworks non-commercial and Squeak. They are targeted at different
niches, the Cincom offering is more geared toward enterprise applications
and Squeak more at multimedia apps. I like them both, each for their own
strengths. And don't forget all the wonderful information available at

Welcome and lots-of-luck!
