That's where this book comes in. It goes into just the right amount of detail about what is actually happening under the covers. I have not made the switch to MVC because I wasn't confident I could work with DbContext reliably but after reading this book, I don't think I'll go back to the old way of doing things.
For who are using DbContext, due the fact it is easy to start to use, but still not have a great understanding about how it works under the hood, I think this book can be a good start.
