There's a copy of it at the Toronto reference library. Interesting book
but I wasn't sure what to do with it. 

I found another book that made more sense to me: Beginning Object Oriented 
Analysis and Design with C++ (by Jesse Liberty). Chapter Three: Class
Design talks about CRC cards (class-responsibility-collaboration). The
author noted that objects are not designed the same in C as they are in
C++. I believe the author said something like: in C there are controller
classes and "dumb" data classes. But in C++ the classes are self-contained
and the knowledge is more distributed instead of having one (or few)
classes that know how "everything" works.

According to these descriptions the objects I've created are more like the
C++ objects: self-contained.
