My Review of Version Control with Git, 2nd Edition

I have used SVN for a little bit on a work project and then another project uses CVS but I found that a lot of projects are using GIT and I thought to myself, "I want to learn GIT" and I got this book to use as a reference.
Disclaimer: This book was received as part of the O'Reilly Blogger Review Program. All comments represent my thoughts and opinions.

I have to say this book does an excellent job of going over the basics and then moving into the more advanced topics. I didn't really do much with the advanced stuff as I don't need it but I really like the fact that I am able to quickly look up everything I need with this book.
I also enjoyed the beginning where it gave a basic breakdown of the history of source control and how the different systems work and are different from each other. That was really useful to know.
The main project I'm on at work is about to start using GIT so this is going to be great to be able to reference when I have questions that come up. That way, I don't need to go bug the people that set it up for us.
