The first part about JDBC is worth 5 stars, no denying! Second part about Hibernate and JPA was a little bit boring. I was missing performance comparisons and I was overwhelmed by "generated" SQL queries. This part, among being the largest one, is more like reference documentation, but still worth reading, so 4 stars. Last chapter is about JOOQ and although I like this library, I wouldn't miss it if it was omitted. Overall - very good book!

I like reading Vlad's blog so I purchased his book as a way how to pay for it.

A good book for senior developers or architects. It is difficult to absorb all his knowledge. Definitely, I will re-read some chapters when needed. He explains jdbc concept and the differences between particular SQL engines. It is a pity that benchmarks are anonymized.

First part about JDBC very good, for sure would come back to it. Part about Hibernate less interesting, still worth reading, but can be used as a reference rather than advice how to solve particular problems.

This book is a must read if you are developing data access layer for relational databases using Java. Extremely detailed, good explanations, amazing code samples. Explores several possibilities of the most famous APIs to interact with relational databases. I would recommend a first full reading without practicing the examples just to have an understanding of all possibilities of the mentioned technologies. After that, use the book to practice the main areas of your interest.
