Wow! Thanks for the kind words Mark.

For those who are interested in some similar material that is freely available online (some stuff that is in the book, and other stuff that isn't), you can peek at the following websites:

 * www.scmpatterns.com -- has a quick-reference from the book, and a summary of the patterns, plus a publications section with some online articles

 * acme.bradapp.net -- aside from some links and a page-ful of SCM definitions, also has several papers that were initial material from the book (not all of it made it into the book). Of particular note are the "Streamed Lines" paper on branching best-practices, and some of the "ClearCase Best Practices" slides are generally applicable to other tools that support branching.

 * www.cmcrossroads.com -- has a monthly newsletter to which I and several other contribute. One recent relevant article is "codeline merging and locking: continuous updates, two-phased commits" from the November newsletter
