3.0 out of 5 stars Django for beginners, Pt 2
Reviewed in the United States on 23 June 2020
I really wanted to be excited about the second book in Mr. Vincent's Django trilogy. I was severely disappointed.

First of all, for the negatives in no particular order:
- If you are using windows and you don't have the pro version or WSL2, you won't be able to complete any of the docker portions of this book.
- There were numerous errors in the book that didn't match what was on github. After troubleshooting for hours, I went to his repo and downloaded a different but functional file.
- The first several chapters were generally repeats from the first book. The double spacing was more than just a cheap ploy for more pages, it made the content hard to follow at times, trying to compare between pages. It also made the content light.
- Many of the subjects were only partially covered. Just when the topic started to get into the meat of any specific matter, the author would defer with a "beyond the scope of this book" type clause.
- My largest gripe was that even though this was a book for professionals, there wasn't a lot of teaching. Each subject was covered the format of brief explanation followed by pages of source code. No real in depth explanation as to what makes the magic work. Just do this, get that. I was hoping to learn more of how than what with the word professional in the title.

What I did like about this book:
- Other than the few technical errors, skipping anything windows related, and lightness, the chapters were really easy to follow. The instructor is great at giving you a very good idea of what you are about to do.
- The range of subjects was great. Each of the important concepts (advanced authentication, performance, security, testing, etc) were at least mentioned. Some examples were enough to get you started. Others were only detailed enough for you to know to research somewhere else, but the range of topics was exactly what should be there.
- Full source on github. The location is only mentioned a few times in the book, so once you find it, bookmark it. It will be a lifesaver for overlooked code typos.

Overall, unless all three books were sold as one, I don't think I'd purchase again.
