This book covers the basics concepts of object-oriented design before moving into the more advanced areas of design
principles, which is where it excels and is extremely valuable. It also contains an object-oriented design notation, although we have plenty of those, these days. I covet mine, as it is the best text on oo-anything I've seen yet. An absolute must-read for anyone doing any work with object-oriented concepts.

I already had a book from this writer (Meilir Page-Jones). So, I expect no less than high quality. I was not disappointed. This is one of the best books that I know of that can be bought about object-orientation. The problem with most other books, that is all other books that I have seen, is that they usually sink very quickly in the mud pool of the teeny weeny details of some object-oriented language. And before you know it the language syntax is discussed and the object-oriented principals are totally forgotten or at its best difficult to extract.
This writer never looses track of the subject he is trying to explain, namely: object-oriented design. As far as I can judge this is about the only book that succeeded to do this. This despite a lot of other books and highly acclaimed writers. On top of that this book is well structured, well built, and, God forbid, actually fun to read!
My advice, run to the bookstore and buy this book!

I bought this book solely based on the greatness of another Page-Jones' book:"Practical Guide to Structured Systems Design". I figured that if this book was half as good as the "practical guide" was, my money would have been well spent.

This book is very inaccessible. It keeps you so deep in "buzz-word soup" that reader has to work very hard to understand his points. The examples are very abstract hard to follow.
