I had already convinced management that we should implement Subversion
before I purchased your book, but it (and "Practial Version Control
Using Subversion" from the Pragmatic Programmer group) just cemented
my belief that we made the right decision. Both these books have
helped me get my head around the whole Subversion "philosophy" and,
after only a couple weeks, have helped me write both user and
administration documentation. I'll be putting your book in the hands
of my users when we roll out into general usage. Thank you for your
tremendous resource, Bill.

David, Bill's book is definitely worth purchasing. Not only does he
describe how to use Subversion, you'll also learn version control
basics (I'd been using version control in the form of MS VSS for 6
years before going to Subversion, and learned volumes from his book)
and he offers several for making the most of your Subversion system.
