More reference than text, this book is a gentle introduction into the world of UML for those with fundamental knowledge of Java and object-orientation. The examples included are not very complex, but some previous exposure to OO is necessary.

On the textbook side of things, the authors have helpfully chosen to explain not only how UML works, but why you should care and how certain principles might best be used. In this regard, it does live up to its subtitle, "A Pragmatic Introduction to UML".
