I just read this book, hoping to find that it will clear my all doubts but sadly this book just addresses definitions.
Not even examples are good. Author just talks about his experience. it seems he has no intention to make the
subject clear. it shows no professionlism. I am sad to say, so far i have read this book, in which half of the book
does not make sense. Proper explanation would have solved the purpose.

this book is nothing more than a introduction or kind of a pocket guide.

Is there any other good book which shows follows some standard to explain very good?

Yeah, but the book was named 'distilled' for a reason. That's what it really is, just UML distilled.

I find UML 2.0 in a Nutshell a better alternative to UML Distilled.

It's just for who wants to learn UML quick and dirty. It's not supposed to use as a reference.

In my opinion, one of the best books out there is "Elements of UML 2.0 Style" by Scott Ambler. It's not a reference for every meta-model element, but then who really needs that when there's plenty of decent tooling to do the grunt work for you, not to mention a freely available spec from OMG.
