"When I use joins I get soft-deleted records, why does this happen?"

The first time you learn how to use the Eloquent ORM, the examples you encounter are for simple apps (ie: a simple CRUD website), which is fine, but you might find yourself struggling when you have to do something more complex than simply filtering result by one field or getting a model by its id.

Everyone always says to just read the docs (you should do that), but it's hard to know what to search for in the docs if you don't understand how Eloquent works and how the different parts of Eloquent fit together.

Wouldn't it be nice to understand what's happening when you make a query?

That's why I decided to write this book.
