It's very good you are keen to gain understanding of your tools rather
than looking for blindly memorizing a couple of commands.

You then might find [1, 2] useful as they explain the basics usually
just skimmed in more novice-oriented books.

[3] can be recommended to better understand branching (some people
consider that post a go-to guide to branching in Git but please be
aware that it's not a dogma to follow blindly).

Finally, I'd recommend [4] as a companion reading to the Pro Git book
already referred to, as it presents a rather deep explanation about how
the information flows between your work tree, the index and the commits
made from it.
