how does this book help someone with some basic knowledge in ORM and Hibernate but not in an advanced level to quickly gain the necessary skills to use hibernate efficiently? also how does this compare with Hibernate in Action

"Hibernate Quickly" is a companion volume to "Hibernate in Action". It's designed to present the Hibernate basics and cover the supporting tools and frameworks, like XDoclet, web apps, Spring and unit testing.
Unfortunately, the Hibernate tools for Eclipse weren't available when the book went to print. We weren't able to include them in the book.

The book is pretty new so we don't have any reviews yet. We (the authors) think it's pretty good.

does Hibernate quickly have many practical examples that gets 1 into real Hibernate development fast?

I think the number examples are one of the main selling point. We try to incrementally build code samples that introduce new concepts. Our core focus is teaching folks that are new to hibernate, while putting in enough advanced stuff for folks who have been around it a while (mostly integration and reference-y type material).
