Review quote

"Besonders das Kapitel über Merges ist sehr interessant und detailreich
geschrieben und man erfährt eine Menge Dinge über Mergestrategien und wie
sie in einem verteilten Versionssystem anzuwenden ist. Hier könnten sich andere
Bücher über Versionskontrollsysteme durchaus eine Scheibe abschneiden." - IT-Stammtisch Darmstadt, Januar 2010

"[Das Buch bietet] eine bislang nicht da gewesene Tiefe: komplizierte Merge-Szenarien, Tipps für Teams mit verteilten Repositories, typische Fallstricke beim scheinbar mühelosen Ändern bereits erfolgter Commits. All das macht das Buch zum kaum entbehrlichen Ratgeber für Git, dessen Entwicklung immmer noch rasant fortschreitet. [...]ausgesprochen dicht geschrieben und gespickt mit Informationen, die so kondensiert noch niemand zusammengetragen hat." - Linux-Magazin, August 2009
