I am working with Flask currently and there were a couple examples in the early chapters that helped me a lot. The explanations are generally pretty clear, but in some cases the author assumes the reader knows a lot.
One thing that annoyed me was the author mentioned this was the most comprehensive and best Flask book available. There's a couple other Flask books out there I have not checked out yet, but I'd prefer an author to acknowledge others in the field rather than assuming their book is hands down the best.
Some of the chapters felt a bit out of order to me. The goal of the book is to create a blogging platform with Flask but the 2nd chapter goes very deep into creating Models with SQLAlchemy. A lot of the chapters just felt in random order, and I would have liked to seen a more ground up approach to building the blogging platform.
Overall this is a good book for learning Flask. There is a lot of relevant information and you cannot go wrong buying this book if you want to improve your skills with Flask.
If you want this product...i think it was half price on the Packt website.
The reader will need to know how to join the topics presented in the book to build a functional application. The source code provided by the author should help.The reader should have some experience beforehand in building an application using the Flask web framework or some other framework. Also, the explanation of some of the topics are not covered in depths.
The books covers advance topics, like NoSQL using MongoDB and Celery. These advances topics are not required to build a Web Application, but are essential to build modern web application that requires high performance and scalability.
The Secure Your App, NoSQL and Celery topics makes the book a worth while investment.
There is more than enough information in this book to the get you started using the Flask Web Framework, but it should not be only your reference.
All in all I would recommend this book.
It's great to have a resource that teaches you not only what you can do, but also tries to pass on some experience on WHY you should be doing it this way.
