From the Publisher
Designed to bridge the gap between well-established software engineering principles and the actual practice of programing in an OOP language such as Smalltalk, this text documents a minimal set of guidelines and potential standards in design techniques that promote easy reuse and maintenance of object-oriented code, reduce the number of defects, and make code easier to read.
From the Back Cover
Bridging the gap between well established software engineering principles and the real-world practice of programming, this book presents guidelines for programming in the Smalltalk language that will result in source code that is clear, easy to read, and easy to understand. Covers layout and structure; comments; code formatting; software reuse and overall program structure; reliability and portability; tips, tricks, and traps. For product managers and programmers using all object-oriented languages.

You will not find many people that program in smalltalk and you will not be able to see a lot of code. This means that your coding style will take longer to develop *naturally*, on your own. This is where Smalltalk With Style comes in: It's a small book and makes simple and easy reading. When you're done with it, you'll put it aside and most likely never refer to it again. But it will change the way you write code in smalltalk, and your code will begin to look the way smalltalk code should. The advantage of this book is that it packs invaluable programming experience in a wonderful, but not-so-popular programming language into a very small book. Get it, read it, get over with it, and go on to write code like a natural smalltalker.
