I personally had a hard time "getting" the smalltalk syntax, until I  
realized how much more simplistic it was than other language  
syntaxes.  now that I understand what is going on, I like it much more  
than any other languages syntax.

I would recommend reading the free online book Squeak by Example.

I found that this book explained what I needed to know about smalltalk  
to make me realize all of its advantages.
