OOP the Easy Way

About the Book

This book explores the essential and accidental complexity of object-oriented programming, and brings the central ideas to the fore while excluding or discarding the tangential and confusing. The result is a succinct description of what OOP can do for us, what we would do to benefit from that, and the gaps that still represent unexplored territory.
