Customer Review

on April 8, 2010
I am a web developer working remotely. I am used to work with Subversion, but wanted to learn Git. The guides and tutorials I found in the web were either too simple or too complex. Until I found the online version of "Pro Git". After being delighted with the first two chapters, and tired of reading on screen, I decided to buy the book. And I am very happy with it!

This book provided the information I wanted, in a perfect rythm - Scott does not waste our time - he provides useful information on every page, and his explanations are extremely well written. Thanks a lot!

Also, the topics and their order are perfect. In chapter 1 and 2, only 45 pages, you learn to use Git, as you may already use Subversion. Chapter 3 is brilliant - it is where Scott explains Git branching - how it works and how you use it. It is also where the power of Git is revealed - and why you should change your version control system to it, if you can.

All the "mistery" terms around Git, like "origin", "master", "push", "pull", "remote", "rebase" are not misterious anymore. You are able to understand their meaning, and not only how to use the commands, but also why, and all the "logic" involved.

Git helps us to do complex things in simple ways - this complexity requires some learning. It is not like software that you can use reading "man" page or a simple tutorial. The "Pro Git" book is a very good resource to get up and running with Git, knowing and understanding very well what you are doing.

I thank the author and recommend this book.
