This book is great introduction to UML 2.0. Its written for OO developers and all examples are Java which fit me to a T but may not suit everyone.
The style is good with lots of examples and each chapter can be read independently if you just need to refresh yourself about a certain diagram.

I use this book all the time as a reference but originally to get a better understanding of UML, other guys I work with have also purchased after borrorwing mine.
A very good read, informative and enough detail to understand and apply to your own design.

As part of my degree I have an Object Oriented Methods module which revolves around applying UML to a system description. Unfortunately I don't appreciate the teaching style of my lecturer so I felt the need to buy this to bridge the gaps in his teaching, and I'm so glad I did.
O'Reilly books are great - their formulaic design makes each one incredibly easy to read; Miles and Hamilton provide a great resource for applying UML modeling principles and explain WHY you should do things incredibly well. I haven't finished the whole book (as I think it covers way more than my course entails) but I'm sure I will find use for it in the future.
Great book and saved my ass!

UML isn't the most exciting topic, but this book does a great job. Its clear, easy to read and the subject order seems very logical. I'd recommend it for starting out learning UML.
