    I'm looking for some suggestions on technology books. I'm not looking for anything on a specific language or technology (i.e., "Thinking in Java" or "Programming C#"). Something like a through discussion on OOP, something that talks about design and theory more than control structures and language IO. I picked up "Extreme Programming in Practice" tonight from the school library. Does anyone have other suggestions?

    If you are talking about your thread from a few weeks ago, then no.

    yes in that thread we had books towards general computer programming, not just particular languages

    Going back and reading Nocera's post in that thread. Design Patterns is one from his list I swear I've seen on the shelves. I also read through the description on Amazon about The Algorithm Design Manual and found this one pertaining to Java, Data Structures and Algorithms in Java. Both the design patterns book and the data structure/algorithm in Java book look great. I'll have to check each of them out.
