I am writing a book about Git and of course I'm using Git to track the 
progress. The files are 
Microsoft Word documents.

As others have noted in this thread, the differences between the two 
revisions of a Word 
document are not too critical for me to track. That said, I do take 
advantage of the 
antiword configuration in Git for Windows (https://msysgit.github.io/), 
which produces a 
text-only version of my Word docs, and compares them both. 

One thing that has helped me greatly is that each time I submit my document 
for review, I 
use git tag to mark the version that I submit. This record-keeping has 
helped me keep

Good luck!
