There are 70-plus books on UML, almost all aimed at programmers, software engineers, and software architects. Of course, many "less technical" people are also involved in modeling and designing software: domain specialists, requirements specialists, and managers, to name a few. What's more, understanding UML gives you insight into all your processes, even those that aren't translated into software. There's a huge need for a UML beginner's book for "the rest of us."
Enter UML Explained. Kendall Scott cowrote one of the world's most honored UML books, UML Distilled. He brings nearly two decades of experience as a writer, trainer, and mentor to the task of explaining UML to novices. He's done a splendid job.
The chapter headings tell you how accessible this book will be. "Identifying Relevant Real-World Things." "Expressing how Things Work Together." "Refining the Structure of Things." "Describing how Things Will Be Built." And the chapters behind the headings don't disappoint. By the time you're finished, you'll be comfortable with all of UML's key components. You'll know how to capture requirements and define use cases. You'll know how to model the details of object behavior, components, and deployment. In short, you'll be effective with UML.
