    Object Oriented for dummies?

    Anyone know of any good books to help a dummy (aka me) get a grasp on OO?

    Thanks.

    If you want to get just the concept and the language doesn't bother then you can read the first two chapters of Thinking in Java, it has explained the OOPS concepts quite clearly...

    Bruce Eckel is indeed very good. He's also written c++ book(among many others like C#, python,...)

    What I would also suggest is that if you don't have experience in C, then do a quick read on it, then the transition to java, c++ would be really easy. I've got ton's of java stuff but it always seems like a daunting task everytime I pick up the java book.

    Kernighan rocks when it comes to C stuff. I've ordered a book myself. Check it out. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS...112977-4421515

    A good book no doubt about that, a book from the creators of C. But i was amazed at the price. I bought that second edition last week and it cost me Rs75/- and on amazon its $40 which is equal to Rs1900/- approx. Thats a huge difference. Ok i know that it would have good looking pages and cover.
