I guess he just expects you have already studied the language
somewhat.  My suggestion is to get a copy of SICP, which can show you
a fair bit about the Scheme dialect of Lisp.  Others here would be
better placed to recommend resources in Smalltalk.
 

Chapter 2 Common Lisp from Paul Graham explains everything!!!
 
To me, that make-dbms function is a trivial one, very easy to
understand at a mere glance.

Sure it is a trivial one! But to understand it I had to look for Common Lisp

book and here it is:

Paul Graham thinks about everything!
And I would recommend reading other papers that tune with my needs:

Special thanks!
Good night!
