Some, not all. The concept of Ubiquitous Language is definitely an
important part of BDD, but there are a few others as well.

We are very close to announcing a release date for our RSpec book
(Pragmatic Bookshelf), which will cover BDD at a high level, but
mostly focus directly on practical use of RSpec and friends. A BDD
slant, definitely, but not a BDD treatise.

I've heard rumors of other RSpec books in the works, as well as a BDD
book, but until their authors make formal announcements, they are just
rumors :)

In the mean time, there are a lot of great blog posts referenced from this list.
