It is also described in "Mastering Mathematica" by J. W. Gray (I  
think he is the father of Theo Gray, the creator and developer of  
Mathematica's Front End). There is a chapter on OOP in Mathematica,  
Meader's package is explained and used to create a object oriented  
approach to GraphTheory. I have never had the slightest liking for  
this approach and I prefer the Combinatorica package by far, but the  
book is very good. There have been at least two editions but I have  
no idea if it is out of print or not.
