   Many people call Etoys as Squeak, but these are different thing:
   + Squeak is a implementation of Smalltalk language and its environment.
   + Etoys is application written in Squeak Smalltalk and integrated
to Squeak environment.

   Historically we (especially etoys community) have not been
differentiating squeak and Etoys very well, that have been confusing.
But now we use "Etoys" specifically, by this we would make it clear
Etoys isn't tied to specific implementation technology.

  The SQE is a book about Smalltalk language/environment, not about Etoys.
  So it seems the book isn't for Joe.
