"Practical Subversion" has a slightly different take on it's
introduction to Subversion (it's more of a crash course, and assumes the
reader knows at least a little bit about version control). It also has
a chapter on conversion tools for moving to Subversion from other
systems, one on tools that work with Subversion (like ant, emacs modes,
shell tab completion, etc.), and a much more in depth section on how to
use the Subversion libraries in your own code, including brief intros to
the Perl and Python bindings. Oh, and there's that chapter on general
Subversion best practices that I think is pretty useful.

In general there's some overlap between the two books, but there's also
some stuff that's only in one and some that's only in the other.
