Review:

"In Squeak, you have your hands in one of the most late bound, yet practical, programming systems ever created. It is also an artifact which is wide, broad, and deep enough to permit real scientific study, creation of new theories, mathematics, engineering constructions, and even its own successor! Please use this book to learn how to do all of the above."—Alan Kay, V-P Research, Disney Imagineering

"The text presents OO concepts in the context of Smalltalk (Squeak), which is by far the best environment and language in which to learn the concepts. The author is clearly enthusiastic about the subject matter…authoritative in explaining the basics of Smalltalk."—Keith R. Pierce, St. Paul Companies
