Gives a very good overview on Git
on 20 November 2010
This is the kind of book you would like to have on many software products: it's informative without dumbly repeating online help material, it's practical but also looks at the big picture, with historical notes etc., it's complete without being excessively thick.
It gives you the headstart in Git that is currently a bit difficult to have by just browsing randomnly on Git related websites.
In particular, I found particularly interesting the initial part that outlines the "behind the scenes" architecture and inner workings of Git; I wish the author expanded that chapter even further! Plus, seeing how things are implemented often help also on the practical side. I wouldn't be too worried to scare the audience as it's going to be rather technical anyway!
