If you're looking to learn Django, this is NOT the book for you. It states that clearly in the introduction though. This book is fairly in depth and offers a lot of information to give you a deep understanding of things you can do with Django. Honestly, most projects will never need this level of complexity of some of the examples this book offers. Some of the examples seem overly complex. It's nice to see different ways of doing things, but some of the code/ways of doing things/formatting seems unnecessary.
It's worth a read if you're building a serious project just to give you a better understanding, some ideas and/or maybe you'll pickup something useful you didn't know before.
Again this is not for beginners. The book moves quick and assumes you already have the understanding of the basics of the framework. Unless you just want to have an extra resource, there are a lot of other books that offer clearer formats for learning. Django For Professionals offers concepts of ideas in a clear way, teaches you just enough, and offers resources of where to go for additional information as your project progresses.
