Hi Dimitris,

You are right.

I have just checked my very own copy of the book (3rd edition) and the 
end of the blurb on the back cover must have been written by some 
overenthusiastic marketing people!

The authors themselves warn the reader on page iv (Preface, "Book 
contents"): "[...] the reader will not find a discussion of 
object-oriented programming in Mathematica, [...]" and refer people whom 
might be interested in such subject to Roman Maider's books on 
programming and computer science.

Best Regards,
Jean-Marc
