Format: Paperback
I have recently started to use this book in an undergraduate application development course which I have taught for the past 5 years. I must have looked at around 30 books before I chose this one. The book I used before this was Rumbaugh's Object-oriented modeling and design copyright 1990. The administration was on me to get a newer textbook.
This book is easy to read and covers quite nicely the standard OO concepts of encapsulation, inheritance, aggregation, polymorphism, message sending, etc. I like the way it starts with a simple application, then adds complexity.
It does not overload the student with details of UML but covers the main constructs. It does not present a lot of actual implementation code. One 20 page chapter is devoted to OO programming in Java.
A good introductory text but not suitable for graduate work.

Format: Paperback
I read this book as part of a Professional College Course.
I found it quite good at covering the concepts.
Two small deficiencies: It falls short in the explanation of how these concepts are applied, and it dedicates one chapter to implementation with Java (Which doesn't help when you are just learning from a language like VB)
Advantages: It is a relatively quick book to read, if you want to learn about Object-Oriented concepts (less than 200 pages without the chapter on Java). It also has fairly good real-life analogies, and a case study.
I recommended it for beginners or those looking at making a move to OOP from structured programming.
If all you want is the quick and dirty on OO, this is the book.

I was able to complete this book in two evenings, and it does serve as a good introduction to UML and object oriented programming. I just wish it went a little deeper, and I found some of the authors design choices suspect to say the least. I just didn't get how a video (one of the classes explored) could search for other videos. This should be a function of a container class (video_collection or something), yet the authors treated the video class as an instance of a video and a collection at the same time. If you're looking to get started learning OOP and UML, this is a decent start, but just don't expect much more than the basics.
