Hi, Susan -
I thought the book you mentioned, "...Squeak a quick trip to Object 
Land" was part of that amazon.com list but perhaps not...thanks for 
mentioning it.
YES!  We would love to see a more "media-directed" book, just like 
you describe available as well...there is certainly a need for such!
