UML is way a to develop a means to describe a process or function so that a programmer can determine how to approach the job of creating the specific program or function to carry out the process. It's supposed to work what ever programming or scripting language is used and so make the task of programming it easier.
The book itself does do a reasonably good job, but it does seem that it would help if you had already undertaken some work with UML first; I don't believe that it's suitable for a complete newcomer. However, although it does cover the overall topic well, there are a number of areas where it doesn't really do enough.
I wouldn't use it as a reference, it's just too light weight for that. But it could be used as part of an introduction; although I suspect any serious programmer would want to find some more in depth material fairly quickly.
Most damning though is that, as far as I can tell, there are numerous small mistakes in the diagrams. These mistakes often include wrong arrowheads or dashing of lines, text that does not match the explanation & mislabelled figure numbers. There are also too many grammatical mistakes in the main text.
I'm guessing that >95% of it is factually correct, but I expected a higher standard.
It teaches you EVERYTHING on the UML2 language and it does in such a way that you actually find it hard to put it down. Its very easy to read and understand and I would strongly recommend it to anyone wanting to know about UML. Forget all the other books that look more 'professional' - thats all they do, they only look it. This book has the real substance.
