First Class - the best practitioner book on the market,
By A Customer
This review is from: Writing Effective Use Cases (Crystal Series for Software Development) (Paperback)
Use case theory is simple, but putting it into practice can leave you scratching your head. Hitting the right level is hard for even practiced people, never mind people just starting with the technique.
Fortunately, this is a clear and concise guide to the practical side of use cases, which no other book I've read covers to an acceptable depth. Alistair uses a slight variation of vanilla use cases, which IMHO makes them a lot more understandable. He also puts UML and graphical methods/diagrams in context.
Plus I like his icons.
