That said, as another reviewer has pointed out, there are some rather confusing statements scattered here and there. Because the authors were too familiar with the material, they didn't see certain ambiguities they were injecting into the text. These probably won't get fixed unless someone takes careful notes as they go, and submits the whole set back upstream.
Another problem is that there was some sloppiness in editing this second edition of the book. Occasionally, some example commands are left out. Or some object labeling is clearly wrong in the text. Or some figure is reprinted a second time over a different caption instead of the correct figure being included for that second caption. The thing to know is that when you encounter these situations, you can go on-line and download the current PDF copy into your browser, and look there for the corrected presentation. Yes, this process is somewhat annoying, but if I had to weigh the overall effect, I still prefer a printed copy for the initial long read-through to learn the tool.
This book has given me so many reasons to hold git high above all other version control systems.
The book is aimed at beginners, it starts with overview of version control systems, then goes over basic commands, then talks about the branching model, then has a chapter about setting up git server and configuring your custom environments. Chapter 5 talks about distributed work-flows, next chapter about advanced git commands. The book ends with a discussion of Git internals.
I liked the book, the explanations were simple, it included graphical explanations and examples. I learned about tools I have not been using - such as git mergetool. It also has a good explanation of how to use "blame" which I never used before, and how to use "bisect" to find which submission introduced a problem.
