This is a really light and fast introduction to Hibernate. It only covers the really basic stuff, just enough to write simple programs and start talking intelligently about Hibernate and persistence. You'll definitely need something more in depth if you are building a serious application.That being said, it's really easy to read and he takes care to show all examples using both XML configuration files and annotations. The areas he covers give one a really good feeling for what Hibernate does. It's a fast read too, you can finish it off in a few evenings.
The book is fine if you want to grasp the idea of hibernate in a short time, but the examples the author uses are far from the best so you can get a better idea of each feature, its not a very long book and this is the second edition, I really don't think he didn't have time to find better examples. Also the way he presents the "exercises" might mislead newcomers to a non-proper application of hibernate, the book takes you through an approach of do "this" in your code, if you want to see "this" in your database; imho they both should be independent. Plus a minority of non really important typos but they can be harmful to people that want to use the code as example without many experience.
Very good book for starting hibernate and ORM fundamentals, maybe not so good for pepole that already know and want to remember
I liked this book a lot the goal is to give a short quick basics on Hibernate. And the goal is accomplished.
