Drawing from his extensive experience as a programmer and teacher, author Cay Horstmann helps readers gain an appreciation for the value of object-oriented design principles. He provides the context so that readers can apply these principles and techniques in their own designs. Throughout the book, carefully developed exercises and examples, and a strong emphasis on problem solving make object-oriented design principles accessible to anyone with limited programming experience.
