I highly recommend "Beginning Java Objects: From Concepts to Code", by Jacquie Barker,published by Apress.

OOP Demystified - always looks interesting when I see it. Its a HeadFirst style stealer though. I think Head First Java was actually good at explaining OO styles without specifically intending to.

Hi akshay,

Perhaps you can check out the following book:

Object Oriented Thought Process, The (2nd Edition) by Matt Weisfeld

I am reading the very FIRST chapter of the above book too...

Hi Jessica.

Thanks for adjusting your displayed name like Dirk asked, but you didn't quite get it right. The naming policy states you need to have both a first AND last name (it keeps a nice professional image around here). We always encourage folks to use their real last name, but if for some reason you don't feel comfortable with that, you can choose a not obviously fictitious last name.

- Jess

An OO book that is very easy to read is
Design Patterns Explained: A New Perspective on Object-Oriented Design. You can read it cover-to-cover in a couple days.
