Why is it worth reading?

When we started using Laravel we found so many out of the box features. Over time, more features have been added at a pace which can be hard to keep up with. All these hidden features can make your life so much easier as a developer.

This book helps you discover these hidden features and shows how they can be applied to your application today. We will focus on the why and less on the how. The understanding of the why helps you make your own definitions on how to implement a feature when you're not sure how to start.
