Review: Getting Good with Git by Andrew Burgess

There are several books about Git. I've decided to review them all and started with "Getting Good with Git" by Andrew Burgess
First of all it's beginner level book. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone experienced developer. Even more it's more like tutorial and not a book.
So, based on previous statements the next chapters can be easily cut off:
  • Introduction to Git
  • Commands
  • GitHub
 IMHO, I would left the next two chapters:
  • Configuration
  • Beyond the Basics
And more important is the price of this book: $19. Guys, come on $19 for this. It doesn't cost this money.

Summary: don't spend your time and money on this book.
