This is a short introductory book to the Mercurial distributed version control
system. The book has a very "hands-on" approach, where each chapter is
structured like a recipe on how to perform one common Mercurial-related
task. I liked the way the book is organized with practical examples followed
by explanations of the concepts/commands introduced. Overall, I found the book
pleasant to read and a good quick introduction to basic Mercurial usage.

On the negative side, I found the book too Unix-centric

This is a nice little book (50-ish pages with actual Mercurial content)
that gives a introduction to Mercurial. It's a relative quick read.
I gave it four stars, as it is relatively precise, not too wordy, and
that it covers the basic concepts relatively well.

It covers Mercurial on most common platforms (Linux, Windows and Mac).
In case of Windows, it mentions TortoiseHg as an alternative, but all
the examples in the book are command-line based and thus may not translate
trivially to TortoiseHg. Some
