object thinking (revisited)

For years now I’ve been looking for that one book that would provide good background reading material to help teach object-oriented software development. Currently I’m reading Extreme Programming Adventures in C# by Ron Jeffries, and I think this book comes closest to fitting my needs. I’m sure not everyone will appreciate the very informal style, in which Ron takes us along for the ride while he develops a new application and learns a new language. But I find the lessons he learns along the way – and the development process he promotes – fascinating. I have yet to find a better introduction to object-oriented design and development.
