<p>The authors offer observations from their own experience learning and using Smalltalk. They report that they had trouble learning Smalltalk despite their fairly extensive programming backgrounds. They contend that new users will encounter several problems, especially if they try to learn the system through unguided exploration. They trace many of these problems to the large and diffuse nature of Smalltalk and to its generalist design.</p>
