Capturing a wealth of experience about the design of object-oriented software, four top-notch designers present a catalog of simple and succinct solutions to commonly occurring design problems. Previously undocumented, these 23 patterns allow designers to create more flexible, elegant, and ultimately reusable designs without having to rediscover the design solutions themselves.

One of the most overrated titles in technical literature.
I felt this was a waste of money for me. The examples used in most cases are the most contrived and superficial. You will actually learn patterns more easily and thoruoghly on wikipedia. Not worth the money.
