I got an opportunity to review a book named UML Distilled. So here is the review that got publish in the internal office magazine.
Have you ever wonder why it is difficult to understand an article on Design pattern which is always with diagram? Was it always difficult to explain an object design to your team mate? Did you ever thought that Class Diagrams, Sequence Diagram and Use Case Diagram are not very handy when it comes to daily development? Is it really difficult for you to conclude a relation between two objects? Then there is an book on UML here.
UML Distilled is a small book on how and where to use UML during the Lifecycle of the project, This book is short, simple and sensible to explain the topic of UML standards and practical implementation. The example are concise with each chapter being very small and language is very simple. The book keeps you interested in the topic and it is an quick way to learn about UML.
