More than 300,000 developers have benefited from past editions of  UML Distilled . This third edition is the best resource for quick, no-nonsense insights into understanding and using UML 2.0 and prior versions of the UML. Some readers will want to quickly get up to speed with the UML 2.0 and learn the essentials of the UML. Others will use this book as a handy, quick reference to the most common parts of the UML. The author delivers on both of these promises in a short, concise, and focused presentation. This book describes all the major UML diagram types, what they're used for, and the basic notation involved in creating and deciphering them. These diagrams include class, sequence, object, package, deployment, use case, state machine, activity, communication, composite structure, component, interaction overview, and timing diagrams. The examples are clear and the explanations cut to the fundamental design logic. Includes a quick reference to the most useful parts of the UML notation and a useful summary of diagram types that were added to the UML 2.0. If you are like most developers, you don't have time to keep up with all the new innovations in software engineering. This new edition of Fowler's classic work gets you acquainted with some of the best thinking about efficient object-oriented software design using the UML--in a convenient format that will be essential to anyone who designs software professionally.… (more)

By the standard of "if you learn one thing from a book, it's worth the price", I was happy with this book. The most valuable thing I learned from the book was how to read and build sequence charts. Some of the design process parts at the beginning are too vague to take action on. Wouldn't want to study UML spec sheets (no common person should want to), so this book was enough to get up and running. ( )

Concise explanation of Unified Modelling Language, but limited to that. Easy to follow and concise. Would need to look at other books for more detail of concepts UML is representing. ( )

Short and concise is good. ( )

A quick read, but I'm not sure how much will sink in. Fowler focuses on the his favorite parts of the UML and dispenses practical advice on when and how it may be useful. Reading a large volume book on the UML would probably be tortuous. ( )

A good book to explain the UML from different diagrams view ( )
