I bought the book recently and it is very good and has more explanations that otherwise available. You can get more from Hibernate with this book in hand than otherwise.

I was expecting a more detailed explanations on the SQL generated for different mappings and the queries. I was intersted in the tuning of O-R Mapping to generate more efficient SQL queries. But I don't see any of that in this book.

It would be great if there is another book and/or article on the principles behind Hibernate and the SQL that it generates.
