My overall feeling is a bit mixed. The book is definitively for someone that knows Python and has used Django before. The author mixes basic concepts with a few a bit more advanced, without going deeply enough in some subjects. It's an easy reading and has some useful notes to take home. IMHO, the author could have done much better. Overall the book felt a little too short
For me, the best part of the book is the overview of the third-party modules that can be useful. The author could have explored a bit more the functionalities of some of these modules though.
The treatments on models and class based views are particularly noteworthy. It would have been nice seeing some more content on custom template tags but alas that's almost a book in and of itself. Forms are properly treated as the data validating powerhouses they are. The comprehensive overview of testing is really fantastic along with recommendations on debugging tools that are standard amongst Django developers.
If you are looking to go from beginner to affective in Django - this is a great way to do that.
I have read articles written by Arun Ravindran and watched his screencasts & talks. So I brought the book as soon as it released.
The book has various design patterns to solve everyday problems while building web apps. It also engages readers with stories & examples to get a better understanding of concepts.
