Abstract Object Thinking, by David West, a highly renowned technologist and evangelist in the community, is definitely a thoughtful and profound object-oriented book. It is written in a really unique style, and different from other object books we've seen ever before. Previously, none of them shows too much interest in the cultural, historical, and philosophical underpinnings of objects in software development. This exceptional and controversial book begins with the basic premise that there is much more to object-oriented paradigm than a matter of experience of object-oriented languages. To fully understand object orientation requires understanding the philosophical and historical roots from which objects come. In a sense, the book talks more about knowledge instead of techniques, wisdom instead of knowledge.
