Practical, comprehensive, and easy to read,
This review is from: UML Distilled: A Brief Guide to the Standard Object Modeling Language (Object Technology Series) (Paperback)This was the first readable book I found on UML and it is still my favourite. It has a practical focus, and concentrates on how to make effective use of UML rather than the abstruse features and OO theory.
There is easily enough detail to allow someone new to UML to effictively read, modify and create UML diagrams as well as some helpful hints and reminders on style for the more experienced.
If you want more then see this book as a well annotated bibliography with an introduction to each topic and where you can find the detail when you need it.
