Overall good book. It's always challenging to make programming into something more digestible.

This is quite informative text on OOSAD. I did not read it from cover to cover, but as much as I have, it seemed dry at times, and I think it should employ more diagrams and more colors ;)
The only three colors you can find in this text are black, white, and blue. That's it. If you're a visual person (like me), you would want some colorful diagrams and screen shots - sort of like used in System analysis and design by Shelly, Cashman, and Rosenblattt.
Anyways. Brief content as follows:

Part 1: Foundations of object-oriented systems development.
-ch 1. The OO system development environment
-ch 2. Introduction to object orientation
Part 2: Project management and planning
-ch 3. Managing the OO information system project
-ch 4. Selecting and planning projects
Part 3: System Analysis
-ch 5. Determining OO system requirements.
-ch 6. Structuring system requirements: use-case description and diagrams
-ch 7. Conceptual data modeling
-ch 8. Object-relational modeling
-ch 9. Analysis classes
-ch10. Selecting the best alternative design strategy
Part 4: System design
-ch11. Physical database design
-ch12. Design elements
-ch13. Designing the human interface
Part 5: System implementation and operation
-ch14. OOSAD implementation and operation

Good things about this book (if you're a student) are for example:
-it uses bold font to designate key terms. It is possible to find books out there which use italics, and it is hard to find key terms if you need them.
-it lists key terms and page numbers at the end of each chapter. I happened to use "New Perspective" series some time ago (for Excel 07 and Access 07), and they don't have page numbers where to find key terms. That's can be a hassle.
-it explains UML diagrams used in OO quite well (to my limited understanding).

I don't know how to comment this book because I feel boring when I read this book. There are many repeat information in different chapters. However, you have some practice exercises after each chapter.
