My review-in-three-words is: great. Get it.
Hibernate and Object/Relational Mapping are very complex subjects, yet Christian Bauer and Gavin King with this book are able to explain them in a so easy and clear way. The first five chapter in particular are really well-written, so that you can start using Hibernate in no time. With chapter six the complexity raises, but it is unavoidable since they start talking about complex mappings and query optimizations.
My personal suggestion to the reader is: at first, read the first five chapters; then, start writing your application with Hibernate; use the other chapters as a reference when you experience some problems while mapping complex class associations, or if you want to refactor/optimize your code.
I really appreciate the fact that the authors put a great effort in explaining not only the tool itself, but also the underlying concepts of ORM and database in general. So, even if you have only a basic knowledge of database, you will be able to understand the book.
Two others goodies: chapter 9 has some great sections explaining who to write code using tools like Middlegen and XDoclet; on Appendix B you can find a nice description of "ORM implementation strategies".

I read this book when I was in quite a hurry to apply hibernate. I basically read it in all kinds of ways like one chapter at a time and also jumping from section to section in almost random order. What I found was that the book is very clearly written (the authors clearly explain the concepts behind hibernate). Also, the book is useful both for reading front to cover but also extremely useful as a reference. Very well structured and readable.

I've been spoilt the last few months with some extremely readable (relatively speaking, of course!) programming textbooks. This book on the other hand is soundly rather than excitingly written. It covers the source material thoroughly and clearly, and has improved my knowledge not only of Hibernate but also more general issues of database and software design.
An excellent purchase if you are a developer wanting to know more about persistence strategies in general and Hibernate in particular, but probably not the one for your beach holiday!

Not knowing anything about hibernate when I bought this book, I had no idea that the xml file configuration methods explained here have now been outdated in favour of using inline Annotations.
Most of the concepts introduced are still fine, but if you want to learn the coding as well as the concepts, look for a more modern book.
