Well, I think that if you go to amazon and read some of the reviews of many of the current books out there, you'll find a common theme. Most of the books are very advanced, and go into great and intimate detail about Hibernate, but quite often, this great attention to detail sometimes makes learning Hibernate, or any technology for that matter, somewhat difficult.

About a year ago, I needed to learn Hibernate for a project I was joining, and I just couldn't find a reference that made learning the basics of hibernate easy. I'd often want to see a simple one-to-one or one-to-many join described, but I found it hard to find simple tutorials that did just that, and nothing else. So, I decided that there must be a market for a very simple and plainly worded how-to book that will help people learn the basics.

And really, that's what my book is - an easy to read book that will help people learn Hibernate quickly. It's not intended to replace Java Persistence with Hibernate as a reference manual, but instead, compliment it by demonstrating how to do the most basic and fundamental Hibernate functions plainly and easily.

Hibernate really is an amazing and fun framework to work with. I like to think that my Hibernate Made Easy book makes Hibernate fun to learn as well, and that is really the difference.
