I borrowed the same book from someone to learn C++. It was printed in 1998, and that book is not for beginning programmers in my opinion. Although it is comprehensive. Download Thinking in C++ by Bruce Eckel, or buy the book. He explains various topics much better.

Wat''s object overloading?
How does one overload an object once memory is allocated for it? Maybe it''s some advanced stuff...hmm.......

Overloading is a kind of Polymorphism which in turn is one of three C++''s core principles.

P.S. Is it inheritance from an abstract class? This is the only one kind of "object overloading" I can think of as I am also a newbie

It so happens that I was teaching a course last year that used Deitel & Deitel''s ", C++ How to Program - Second Edition".

I still have a copy here, if you tell me which chapter is causing your confusion I''ll give you a hand.

I assume its Chapter 8 - Operator Overloading or maybe Chapter 3 - Function Overloading
