The next-to-last book of 2008 is now in print: Pragmatic Version Control using Git.
We’ll ship them out as soon as the trucks arrive, but we’re guessing the paper books won’t be delivered to customers before Christmas (unless you can arrange for some flying reindeer to help out). But you can get your own copy of a PDF ebook in under a half hour, and start your reading early.

Pragmatic Version Control using Git
Git is a modern, fast distributed version control system. But understanding how it fits into your development can be a daunting task without an introduction to the new concepts. Whether you’re just starting out as a professional programmer or are an old hand, this book will teach you how to use Git in this new distributed world.
Whether you’re making the switch from a traditional centralized version control system or are a new programmer just getting started, this book prepares you to start using Git in your everyday programming.
Pragmatic Version Control Using Git starts with an overview of version control systems, and shows how being distributed enables you to work more efficiently in our increasingly mobile society. It then progresses through the basics necessary to get started using Git.
You’ll get a thorough overview of how to take advantage of Git. By the time you finish this book you’ll have a firm grounding in how to use Git, both by yourself and as part of a team.
