3.0 out of 5 stars A curate's egg of a book
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.

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.
