Well, how can one start thinking about objects as people? So far, I've found PHPFreaks OOP (3 parts to it), Object Thinking, Code Complete 2, and Pragmatic Programmers: Journeyman to Master very good resources.
I think of every object as some type of room, person, or other metaphor. Some objects will be books (Data aggregators, structs), People (Managers, workers, etc.), and rooms (Lists, arrays, stacks, etc.). The point is if you think of an object as different materials, then you tend to see the classes, functions, and properties you need to write onto paper. Example is: I have a room full of books. I need this person to retrieve a book from a room and tell me what is the author's name. Book has the authors name, room has the book, person need to search the list to retrieve the book and finally 'gimme' the author' name. It is one way of looking at OO thinking, so you can come up with different associations and bound together.
You are using the real world as a model and attempting to replicate it, always remember that.
