i do not agree. (imho, fwiw, etc)

he describes what he wants to do, and then introduces a formal way of
writing this. so yes, there is a language, but that language is beeing
built/constructed in the book. the book is not about the language.

other oo books i have seen starts with the languge, showing what the
language can do.

bengt, who wishes he could explain the difference better...
