Nope it's right in the book.

COMMITTED only has meaning in the context of a wc and is resolved
locally not at the server. So COMMITTED means the rev the file as you
see it in your local wc was last changed in. There may of course be a
change that your wc may not reflect that would be newer than BASE.

For example if you do svn update -r 1234 and then do:
svn log -r COMMITTED foo

Say foo had commits in 1222 and 1240. You would get the log of 1222
from the above command.
