I dont think there's anything special in Object graph except it shows how the objects are related to each other. If you are familiar with Graph concepts then object graph should be obvious.

Well, yes, that's sort of what he meant. Only all you need to know is that the objects and their references form a graph. The objects are the nodes and the references are the edges which connect the nodes.

So that requires page 1 of the Graph Theory book, which explains what a graph is, but that's all. You don't need to know anything else about graphs, really.
