From the Back Cover

Start Developing Enterprise-Class Applications That Provide Real-World Solutions Now! Since Smalltalk is one of the fastest-growing object-oriented development languages in both large and small organizations, the demand for programmers with Smalltalk development skills is rising rapidly. Start boosting your own programming career today... by relying on this user-friendly guide to exploiting Smalltalk's powerful tools. You'll quickly progress from smalltalk basics to real-world applications development. Valuable guidelines for writing more productive code are provided in chapters that cover how to: Handle errors using Smalltalk's handling mechanism to eliminate most errors checking code; Change procedural code into object-oriented code... and eliminate procedural code from applications; Write multithreaded applications with semaphores and mutexes; Use the Model View Controller paradigm to split applications into pieces that each focus on the domain problem and user interaction. Guidance on how to improve software testing includes an example of a Test Manager you can build and use in your projects. Ready-to-use code examples on the disk included with the book will accelerate your Smalltalk programming proficiency.

This is the one Smalltalk book that I carry with my laptop. If there's a Smalltalk feature that I haven't dealt with in some time then I'll take a peek at it here before I do anything else. It's great for Smalltalkers who are just about to ascend the steep portion of the language's learning curve - this book will drag you right up to the top!

This book is fun to read and to learn from. It teaches so many advanced Smalltalk programming techniques. Those that make the difference between an expert and a beginner. It is a quantum jump for the reader. Wisdom and pleasure in doing it better awaits you here. Unique, motivating appreciation for the beauty of this language.

This book very readable and informative if you are working with the VisualWorks SmallTalk interpreter. Most books on Smalltalk are quite useless. Maybe because there are various SmallTalk interpreters with their own basic class structures. I'm still looking for a book like this but twice the size, so that it includes comprehensive GUI analysis, garbage collection, IO handling, etc. However, for what this book sets out to do, it does it very well.

Format: Paperback
I find computer programmers are obscure writers. They don't seem able to express what they mean well. But this is not so for Mr Sharp. I've read online articles on OOP and other books on topics such as encapsulation, polymorphism, and messages and methods, and somehow the ideas just didn't gel. But with Mr Sharp's lovely concrete examples, I finally saw the light. Even if you want to programme in another OOP language I would recommend reading the early parts of this book to understand these concepts clearly.

This is a wonderful in-depth resource for Smalltalk development. I make sure to have it by me at all times when working in the language.

It's not just a great reference, it also discusses different approaches to using Smalltalk and their tradeoffs.
