I liked the material from Brown University (though I am not sure how much of it
is still available online) and also that of the University of Manchester
(though I think it was for Self 3?). You can find this stuff linked from this


Some of the oldest papers on Self (the Language section in
http://www.sun.com/research/self/papers/papers.html) might give you a better
feel for the language than what you have read so far.

Of course, a lot of material about Smalltalk is valid for Self as well.
