I have just downloaded and started reading a free PDF book about version control systems (VCS), entitled Version Control by Example
, written by Eric Sink. So far I have read a really informative chapter about the advantages of third generation VCS, such as Git, over the second generation ones, such as Subversion and TFS. So far it is a very nice read. I hope you will like it too.
