The title says it all. I'm just looking for a good OOP book. One that handles Classes, Composition, Inheritance, Polymorphism, and the other OOP related things that I most likely don't know about. Any language is fine as well.

The big book in the category is Design Patterns, although some people hate on many of the design patterns included. It is certainly worth the read.
The design patterns covered in that book are covered here.

I second the fact that you don't need a good book though.
A quick google search yields some good (and cheaper) options:
