This is an very well-written book on Enterprise design patterns. Mark Grand presents his topics very clearly and describes each pattern he discusses in detail. The book starts with a thorough tutorial on UML that provides many different examples of the various diagrams and elements, and how they are used together. This part of the book is a good foundation for the balance of the book, which uses UML diagrams in each pattern description.
The book is logically divided into different sections based on the common uses of the patterns described. Then each pattern description is broken down into various parts. Mark does an excellent job of focusing in on the various things that affect the pattern in use. He also uses real world examples to describe usage instead of the usual contrived ones found in many books.
This is a book that you will read once then use each time you are implementing a pattern to see what you�ve missed. From an educational point of view, the book is very good and will teach you a lot about the patterns in it. From a development standpoint it may be even more valuable in that it can be used as a reference to get alternative ideas or to see what consideration you may have missed in your implementations. I highly recommend this book to anyone doing enterprise work now or in the future. Now I have to go out and get the first two volumes!!!
