I want a concise book to teach me UML by example, with a focus on use case.
There seem to be many books out there and a lot of mixed reviews.
Anything much over 200 pages probably not for me!
TIA
John

"UML Distilled" by Martin Fowler is a good, concise introduction to UML. It does not focus on use cases alone.
"Writing Effective Use Cases" by Alistair Cockburn goes into the details of writing use cases.
These two books will probably be sufficient for you

Thanks OMAR KHAN, Together Practical Guide is a good brief for UML. It helped me to brush up the concepts I learned long ago.

Thanks OMAR for your great link recommendation. Together Practical Guide does clear my concepts about UML.
