The authors updated the book this morning and I decided to reward their favor with a review.

This book is excellent. Good best practice guidelines for Django delivered with ice cream and examples from personal experience. I'm very happy this is released, it even better than the previous editions. The book is easy reading, but dense information. I love the cover and the interior drawings. If i had a complaint it would be I want more drawings!

Great book - I was initially scared it'd be to difficult for me because I'm a beginner but the book helped me by not only getting a better understanding of Django but also showing many tips and useful packages I'll definitely use on my Django journey! Can't wait for the paperback! ...more

This book is essential for anyone who uses Django, whether they're a beginner, intermediate, or advanced user. It's got a permanent place on my desk, and I consult it several times a week.

It isn't a tutorial; rather, it's a reference manual for how to build Django apps that will be secure, easy to use, and compliant with the best practices as we currently know them. Anytime I'm doing something new in Django, or playing with a feature for the first time, I always consult Two Scoops to make sure I

Lots of useful information in this book. It's important to know that this is not a Django guide or reference; it's a collection of best practices. It really helps when you're not sure if you're doing something the right way, but if you're looking for a book to learn Django from the ground up, this is not it. ...more

What a cracker of a book. These two python evangelists are outstanding. The best technical book I have read. This is a book about principles and the section on testing was really useful. I think I should show my team. I have 1.6 currently, but will get 1.8.

Уау! Книга по проге, которую можно читать, как настоящую книгу, а не как выжимку из доков! Тем не менее Django перестал представлять для меня интерес, так что уже к середине мне стало скучно. Но дело не в тебе, а во мне.
