I have been programming for several years now, but, as I am moving deeper into development want to get a good book on OOP to ensure I have all the fundamental concepts. Does anyone have recommendations for a solid, fundamental book on OOP? If possible,
I'd prefer something between the beginners books and the academic/textbook style. I suspect, however, that what I am looking for may fall more into the category of textbook than anything.

I know you said you didn't want a beginner book, but I'm kind of in the same situation as you and I found this book very good.

This is an older book, yet it is absolutely one of my favourites:
Paperback: 582 pages
Publisher: Prentice Hall; United States ed edition (Feb 13 1993)
Product Dimensions: 23.3 x 15.3 x 3.4 cm
Shipping Weight: 975 g
Coad's OOP provides examples in Smalltalk and c++ too.
http://www.amazon.ca/Object-Models-Strategies-Patterns-Applications/dp/0138401179 is a newer version:
Paperback: 544 pages
Publisher: Prentice Hall; 2 edition (Oct 20 1996)
Product Dimensions: 25.2 x 19.2 x 3 cm
Shipping Weight: 1.3 Kg
i'm not sure if i'd call it newer ... to me, it appears substantially different.

Thanks, I actually got a copy of this and it's sitting on my desk patiently waiting. Looks good.
Thanks I'll check both of these out.

I am currently studying Object Oriented Programming and I am using what I would consider a magnificent textbook. It is an introductory textbook, focusing on fundamental skills and principles:
Thinking in C++ by Bruce Eckel (and Chuck Allison for volume 2).
With Kind Regards,
