I have viewed the ebook via my paperwhite, kindle for pc and kindle for iphone; they all have the same problems. I have changed the font size but will little impact. In the paperwhite, you can tap to move around the diagram but this is not an ideal solution. In kindle for PC, this is not an option which means that there is no way to view the whole diagram.
The book itself is well paced for a beginner.
As this book is primarily about diagrams, viewing these diagrams is of primary importance. I wish someone had thought about diagram resolution and formatting when this was converted to the kindle version.
This book is not a complete reference but I think it is a good place to get started before jumping into a deeper exploration of UML. One thing I find lacking in the few books I have looked at is there is no notation summary, and this book is no exception.
I especially liked the "go to code" descriptions which described how you can take the model and implement the solution in software. There were a few of these. More would even be better. This book is not language specific, but I think some C++ or Java experience will help.
Overall I think it put me in a good position to pick up a more advanced text which is what I was after. If that is your goal I would recommend this book.
