The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'Smalltalk Best Practice Patterns':

Reviewer Rob Slade wrote:
This book is good, it's just kind of hard to define. It is for experienced Smalltalk programmers. It is a collection of short pieces, describing common problems in programming and advising on how to deal with them. There is an extensive effort to organize and link related problems. The advice varies: some is quite Smalltalk specific, some is generic advice that is of use regardless of the language being used. (Almost all sections are illustrated with sample Smalltalk code.) The format is generally that which is coming to be associated with "patterns" in program design. copyright Robert M. Slade, 1996
