Editors Note 1 | 62915-4 The definitive reference on the most important new technology in software! "While the original version of OOSC is a classic, OOSC 2/E is destined to overshadow it and all other general introductions . . . literally an epic work." -James C. McKim, Jr., Hartford Graduate Center "Compelling. Extremely well-written and literate . . . I recaptured that same sense of intellectual excitement I felt reading the first edition for the first time." -Paul Dubois, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Editor, Scientific Programming Dept., Computers in Physics "The definitive tome on Object-Orientation . . . the finest piece of writing and thinking about this vast subject . . . Bertrand has a lot to say of great importance and says it well in this significantly revised book." -Richard Wiener, University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, Editor, Journal for Object-Oriented Programming A whole generation was introduced to object technology through the first edition of Bertrand Meyer's OOSC.
