This is not a bad book, but it has far too many typos and other errors in it. It also demonstrates everything on a too simplistic model. Having said that, it is extremely good in its explanations of things which get left out of other books on Entity Framework, for example the difference in use of IQueryable and IEnumerable.
It is essential that you work through all the exercises, most of which are based on the Model First approach. If you are not prepared to do this -- don't buy the book.
It is weak on CodeFirst, although it does illustrate it. Migrations are not mentioned, which makes Code First usable.
Having said all this -- I don't regret buying the book and working through it.

I am not too sure I wasn't doing something wrong but some examples simply did not work. Other examples seemed to be rather contrived doing something that could be done in simpler ways. As such would not recommend it to beginners how might not be able to figure out what is not going right on their own. As an intro book on the subject should work well enough for those who have experience in C#.
