Disclaimer - I received a free copy of the ebook.
I was a bit skeptical about this book, as any book with "cookbook" in the title. As far as I know, experience is the only way to really acquire software engineering competence.
With this review, I apologize. The only (small) negative point is that is targeting Django 1.6, but this may be an issue only with the migrations part, where Django 1.7 incorporated the Django South project.

What are we talking about?Very well known Intel Corporation adopted the Tick-Tock model since 2007 for the development of the X86 line of microprocessors. Summing up, a tick introduces small changes, while a tock can be seen as a new product release.
As of today, Intel is now mostly crushing long time competitor Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) with this model/strategy – up to 2007 AMD was on Intel’s heels in Desktop and Server market, while today is well behind the chip behemoth (referred as Chipzilla – Intel, and Chimpzilla – AMD – in The Register, by the way). Obviously, making decent products helps, too.
