Object oriented methods
This is another book aimed at helping those making decisions to arrive at better informed ones. This is a second (and substantially updated)edition of a book that was deservedly well reviewed when it was originally published. Those who have to give advice on the choice of any aspect of OO technology from design to programming and testing will know that they are faced with attempting to make decisions based on ill-informed and often biased sources of information. Ian Graham attempts to survey the whole field, laying out your choices for you rather than making them for you. In each aspect of the subject the result of reading Object-Oriented Methods will be to allow you to reach decisions based on an understanding of the problems and the current range of tools aimed at helping you solve them. If you have a serious decision to make this would be a good place to start before proceeding to a more detailed investigation of what seem the potentially best choices for you and your needs. The other group of people who will benefit from reading this book are those that want or need a general overview of the OO arena. This is a good text that should be read by students of Computing, those who recognise that good advice is based on a comprehensive knowledge of the field and those who have to make a practical commercial decision about which OO route to take.
