"Just as Strunk & White's The Elements of Style provides rules of usage for writing in English, this text furnishes a set of rules for modeling in the Unified Modeling Language."

"It's fully loaded with information that can make your UML diagrams far better than most. That's because the author doesn't waste space. Once you get to the body of the book there are no blank pages, and few (if any) wasted words, just lots of recommendations for simple ways to improve your UML diagrams...In summary, this is an excellent book full of good advice on improving your UML 2.0 modeling."
Praise for Scott Ambler's previous books:
"...Scott Ambler's book delivers exactly what it promises--a robust look into building object applications."
Software Development on Building Object Applications That Work (Cambridge, 1998)
"...the best book I've read that covers the basic fundamentals of object-oriented software engineering and process. It is easy to understand and is a must read for those new to OO."
