Book: git version control for everyone

The book has the PLUS of being very simply explained (although quite verbosely) and it focuses on some fundamental aspects of GIT which are very useful.

The MINUS is that it's for Windows users (they should have mentioned that in the title) and wastes a lot of real estate in UI snapshots - as always when you talk about Windows.

Also, I didn't appreciate the use of the video-games paradigm...especially when it comes to neo-nazist games like Contra (freely inspired by the murderous death-squadrons who tortured an killed scores of civilians in Nicaragua) or Counter-Strike - which seems more or less the same violence-inspiring, brain-washing shit.

Buy it if you are a REAL beginner and you don't mind wading through some idle talk.
