5.0 out of 5 stars definitely must have
It doesn't matter if you're a developer, student od DevOps sysadmin ( as I am ). This book should be first thing which you'll read before touching git. Only thing missing are different workflows examples ( especially with pull requests ).

3.0 out of 5 stars not quite clear enough
this isn't quite Git for Dummies, which is what I'd have liked. The primary fault lies in the way terminology is used and not really explained properly ... take "check out": to me this suggests "checking out" a book, in which case you have the book and no-one else can use it. But "checking out" a git repository appears to mean copying the files...

5.0 out of 5 stars Not JUST a pocket guide, 21 Aug 2014
By 
Iain (South West England) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Git Pocket Guide (Kindle Edition)
Not *just* a pocket guide but *also* the clearest presentation of Git in any of the several books I have read. The author writes clearly; describing, at a high level, the concepts and commands together with a lot of useful details. The book also has a useful "How do I?" Section with more than 20 common recipes. Many authors have succeeded in presenting Git as a confusing mess. This author is almost unique in his ability to manage the presentation of Git in a series of simple chunks with relevant and useful examples.

3.0 out of 5 stars not quite clear enough, 6 July 2014

This review is from: Git Pocket Guide (Paperback)
this isn't quite Git for Dummies, which is what I'd have liked. The primary fault lies in the way terminology is used and not really explained properly ... take "check out": to me this suggests "checking out" a book, in which case you have the book and no-one else can use it. But "checking out" a git repository appears to mean copying the files from a remote git repository to your own local one... leaving others the possibility of "checking it out" too. And it also appears to be different from "cloning"... and possibly different from "pulling". But could you please explain a bit more?
I suspect that if I read this book 3 times and keep experimenting I'll get the hang of Git. And this book has 3 merits: 1) there don't appear to be any rivals of the "Git for Dummies" type; 2) it is (at the time of writing, mid-2014) recent enough for most of the commands to work as outlined in the book; 3) CHEEEEEEEAP!!!!
