The content is incredibly thorough and extensive, but also still very accessible. Many documented practices are fairly independent of each other, so even if you decide to diverge from the authors' opinions in some area, that doesn't reduce the value of the rest of the book. However, you'll find that a rare issue, because the practices from this book are clearly motivated.
I wish every technical book was written like this.
As a self taught developer I don’t have the experience of other developers to draw off, this book is a godsend.
It’s not a beginner ‘how to’ book, if you want to learn Django make this the second book you read.
Although it is aimed at those with Django experience, it's also invaluable for somebody starting to develop Django, as it will prevent you from making loads of mistakes. It's written in a clear pedagogical way, and having this book will effectively add a year or two of Django experience to your knowledge.
If you develop Django, you *have* to have this book.
Found the icecream illustrations a bit distracting and pointless at times, waste of paper in my personal opinion, but they do break up the text nicely in places. Also felt that the number of code examples that wrap over page breaks a bit annoying, something that could've been prioritised over the aforementioned illustrations perhaps.
Would recommend to anyone getting into Django or who has dabbled but wants to learn more about it.
Written in a friendly and fun style, the examples used stick with a single topic throughout which helps.
Very much recommended.
