This book provides a good introduction to using Git. As with most educational books, the examples presented are more helpful if the reader works through them while reading the text. Because the book is freely available online as well as available in print it is in my opinion a must-read for Git newcomers.

Some reviewers complain that the book spends too much time comparing Git to other source code management (SCM) software, but I would argue that this characteristic is beneficial to readers relatively new to SCMs. The comparisons throughout will give inexperienced readers knowledge of the language surrounding SCM software and enable them to talk about Git with users of other SCMs without having to also be experienced with those other SCMs. That said, the book could just as easily have been titled "Pro-Git."
