This is by far the most useful book I have seen till now on the topic of data modeling "patterns" or "templates". The data models are well abstracted and contain the necessary detail for use in actual implementation projects. The models also serve as good examples/illustrations of common modeling principles, making the book a good "application primer" after a book on database modeling methods. See Martin Fowler's "Analysis Patterns" for some approaches on how to turn these models (intended for use with databases) into useful conceptual resources for object oriented implementations.
