No, the book doesn't really focus on individual libraries (EF, MVC, etc.) as much as it just tries to focus on the language itself. I wanted to drive home the point that if you use C#, you can target all the major platforms :)
The C# community is trying. It's hard to separate C# the language from C# the Microsoft product. People just have it in their minds that you're stuck with the MS tools and libraries. Things like Nancy and Albacore is where C# should be headed.
