I've written Java for a year or two. The more I write program, the more I find myself lack of a good OO concept. Would anyone kindly advise me a good OO book? I can only afford to read one book at this time. Pls advise.

The book that helped me most to grok OOD was "Refactoring" by Martin Fowler. It's about identifying inadequate design choices by so called 'code smells' and 'refactoring' it to a better design step by step.

Or, you can choose "Java Design - Peter Coad & Mark Mayfield"
