Spring Persistence with Hibernate Book Question

Why do we need a book on this topic when there are so many existing texts which cover the same topic?
From the publisher website, it looks as if this book is a mix of beginner to intermediate level introduction of hibernate and spring.
Please correct me if I am wrong, but it seems to me that it is just another book having mashup of the existing books.

Absolutely...when I was reading I was more looking forward to topics like IoC with Spring, AOP based topics, Transaction Management. If you know hibernate you would be more interested how Spring adds to the flavor...although there is an honest effort in explaining the basics of hibernate

This book is excellent if you are a beginner on Hibernate or Spring, or you know Hibernate and are going to integrate your Hibernate application with Spring. I wrote the book for developers who are going to use Hibernate and enhance it with Spring services. You can learn Hibernate or Spring persistence through this book if you are already unfamiliar with these frameworks, or learn how to use both frameworks if you know them individually.
