My library hasn't got anything thorough on OOP itself (That's what you
get for living in a small town), so I consider making an additional
(virtual) trip to the bookstore.

Those of you familiar with the contents of my latest purchase, can you
recommend a good OOP resource I could consider a good buy?

Should it be of interest somebody else:
