can you recommend a good small talk book?

can you recommend a good small talk book?

hi,1st year comp. si. student,

I just got small talk and I wanted to know a good book to read to help me get started.


RE: can you recommend a good small talk book?

My advise is refer"SMALLTALK BY EXAMPLE" first and afterwards go for "smalltalk by example"
"Smalltalk by Example" bundled with the some examples is very good to follow.


RE: can you recommend a good small talk book?

Though it is not really introductory, Kent Beck's "Smalltalk Best Practice Patterns" is a MUST READ if you are learning/using Smalltalk.


RE: can you recommend a good small talk book?

In the first place have a look at a lot of freely available books online at:

I'd recommend one of these books:
   Smalltalk An Introduction to Application Development using VisualWorks, Trevor Hopkins and Bernard Horan, Pearson Education, 1995.

To be able to go thru the book u can download the non-commercial VisualWorks version.
