We like to think today that we know how to write books on programming, but I'll tell you, this is one of the most enjoyable books I've ever read on the subject. Surprisingly clear and thought-provoking, this book doesn't beat you over the head with the concept, but gives a basic idea and lets you use your own creativity in applying the material. Truly a book that appreciates the "programming is an art and a science" philosophy.
My copy of "Smalltalk-80: The Language" should arrive at my doorstep any day now :)
