I've just started reading it. And, so far, it is also very helpful. Did a 
wonderful explanation about "git mv" to be able to restructure your 
project's files into different subdirectories and why it is so simple and 
fast. I have a much better idea how git is "content addressable" and how 
different it is from other VCS's methods of tracking changes. Pro-Git was 
also fairly good at it. Leave it to Linus to come at VCS "sideways". Also 
liked the explanation of where the name "git" came from. That's not a Texan 
slang word. I like have two different references. It's like reading 
different Bible translations. I get a better idea of meaning due to the 
different viewpoints.
