Having said this, most of the book can be read, ignoring .NET. So those of you into C++ or Java can still gain from the book. He gives lengthy, detailed explanations of defining and refining requirements. And then mapping these to components and interfaces and using these results to design architecture and components. Not a book for the impatient. Shoemaker takes time to carefully expound on the basic ideas. If you're new to UML, a deliberate slow reading might be best, to gain the most from what he is saying.
Another virtue of the book is that apart from the .NET details, it can be used years from now. (Barring any major advances in our understanding of the design process.) It is not one of those computer books that you have to replace in 2 or 3 years time.
If the other books had done their job, I would not have had to buy this one,
This is the ONLY one that get's the point across without making you nod off. It's hard to put down. Probably because I finally found someone who can clearly explain this stuff.
The author has experience TEACHING this class and has learned from the students in how to do just that.
What's with the reviewer making fun of stick figures?
That's UML from the three amigos, not this author.
This is a UML book not a dot net book.
-Too much UML and modeling process freestyling.
-Can you take an author seriously if he keeps on quoting large blocs of text from other books and weblogs and particularly the ones from the Gilbert comic strip? How about one that not only uses "stick-man" symbol, but also provides his own personal "stick-pet" symbol?
-the whole book seems like filled with personal comments and stupid jokes.
