In the first day of receiving this book, I was able to find multiple inconsistencies that had been made in my workplace's code and immediately was able to improve performance in certain areas of our application. If you think you know everything about Django, take a taste test of this book. I promise you will be delighted.
I did not read TSoD 1.5 so I cannot attest to the changelog or usefulness in getting the new one, but if you are writing production django code you should read one!
If you're apt at python and want to start kicking ass at web-development, there is no better book.
Would recommend to anyone who is considering or currently using Django.
Do not expect a tutorial type of book.
There are few drawbacks for being only available on papper, you have to type each URL in the browser, the printing quality is good but I don't really like the cover design and extensive ice cream comparison, but that's no "biggie"
For noobs I suggest learning the basics first though, using guides like "http://www.tangowithdjango.com/" for example.
This book is exactly what I needed. There are so many different ways to do things in Django, often with several correct answers. This is laid out so that it's much easier to choose which to go with, based on industry experience.
It's engaging, amusing, and stuffed full of good information. I've already suggested this book to several other people wanting to learn Django.
