10. Git Succinctly by Ryan Hodson
Git Succinctly helps the reader get up and running with one of the fastest-spreading revision control systems out there.
Complete with vivid diagrams, clear code samples, and a careful walk-through of primary features, this book is a quick guide to how Git operates, what its advantages are, and how you can incorporate it into your own workflow.
Git Succinctly teaches you how to install and configure Git, how to create and clone repositories, how to use the staging area to organize and manage your commits. It also shows you how to create, manage, and merge branches as well as how to interact with remote repositories.
- Getting Started – a brief look at installation, configuration, initializing and cloning repositories.
- Recording Changes – introduces the basic workflow for creating snapshots using the working directory, staging area, and committed history.
- Undoing Changes – undoing in the working directory, undoing in the staging area, and an entire commit.
- Branches – manipulating branches, checking out branches, merging branches, branching workflows, and rebasing.
- Remote Repositories – covers the mechanics of remotes, and presents two common workflows of Git-based collaboration: the centralized workflow and the integrator workflow.

12. Version Control by Example by Eric Sink
Version Control by Example uses practical examples to explain version control with both centralized and decentralized systems.
The book looks at 4 version control tools: Git, Apache Subversion, Mercurial, and Veracity.
The author founded SourceGear, a software company which produces version control tools.
The book covers:
- Basic version control commands and concepts.
- Introduction to Distributed Version Control Systems (DVCS).
- Advanced branching workflows.
- Strengths and weaknesses of DVCS vs. centralized tools.
- Best practices.
- How distributed version control works under the hood.
