Is Hibernate really productive?

The more I try to learn Hibernate, the more I get repulsed. It started with a noble idea. But like J2EE, things soon started to get out of control. Now, I see so many contradictions in Hibernate. I think these tool designer should know where to stop. Hibernate is a tool not a language, the learning curve is curvy and full of "can be done in multiple ways". Well, a tool should stick to one way and not try to behave like a language.
How can a tool be really productive if you are supposed to study a book of 900 pages! Yes I am referring to the book written by Hibernate's author...
