This book is generally considered to be one of the best practical guides to data modeling and is commonly praised for its clarity and usefulness. Although it is a practitioner's guide, it garnered healthy classroom adoptions in the US and Australia. For the 3rd ed the authors have added a substantial online component including UML versions of all the diagrams, extra examples, course notes, questions, and solutions. Also, Graeme Simsion is a highly regarded member of the data management community, both in academia and industry. He won the 2002 DAMA Lifetime Achievement Award and the 2003 International Achievement Award.
