Review: Pro Django (The Expert's Voice in Web Development)

User Review  - Alex - Goodreads

Structure is bad. Writing style is awful and annoying. Content is mostly good. This book should be thicker, to cover more important topics, and better structured. Right now it looks like reference extracts with random not linked examples of different, not always complex or insightful, tricks. Read full review
