That book, while well written, is very much with a language: Eiffel. The
author explains at the end of the book that he has just taught you
Eiffel. (Which he hopefully would then have you purchase it from his company ;-)

Meyer tends to criticize other OO languages (Java, Smalltalk, etc) as being too soft (vague, etc). He is a very opinionated and passionate OO advocate.
