The Definitive Guide to Django: Web Development Done Right (Google eBook)
This latest edition of The Definitive Guide to Django is updated for Django 1.1, and, with the forward–compatibility guarantee that Django now provides, should serve as the ultimate tutorial and reference for this popular framework for years to come.
Django, the Python–based equivalent to Ruby’s Rails web development framework, is one of the hottest topics in web development today. Lead developer Jacob Kaplan–Moss and Django creator Adrian Holovaty show you how they use this framework to create award–winning web sites by guiding you through the creation of a web application reminiscent of ChicagoCrime.org.
The Definitive Guide to Django is broken into three parts, with the first introducing Django fundamentals such as installation and configuration, and creating the components that together power a Django–driven web site. The second part delves into the more sophisticated features of Django, including outputting non–HTML content such as RSS feeds and PDFs, caching, and user management. The appendixes serve as a detailed reference to Django’s many configuration options and commands.What you’ll learn
Anyone who wants to use the powerful Django framework to build dynamic web sites quickly and easily.Table of Contents

Review: The Definitive Guide to Django: Web Development Done RightUser Review - Jason Skicewicz - Goodreads
This book is a good reference book to have on your table while building Django projects. It is a fairly useful read as well just to know what Django offers, but it doesn't go into too much detail on any one topic. I would say this is just a Django overview. Read full review
