Changelists overview?

Just wanted to tag on to Alexander's thread below, and ask some basic questions about changelists. I know that Perforce uses them and I hear about other users such as Alexander who swear by them, but I've not used them and am curious as to why they are so appealing.

Can someone give me a good overview?
