I just ordered this book:

It’s called The Build Master, and it’s about a young peasant boys experiences in medieval England, and his touching, yet somewhat curious relationship with his pet chicken…..

Whoops, wrong book. Actually, this The Build Master, written by Vincent Maraia, is all about SCM. I’m really excited about reading this book, because with the release of Visual Studio Team System, it’s going to be important to understand the implications of good SCM, and getting a leg up on best practices is the best way to do it. I will keep you’ll posted occasionally on my progress through the book, but I dare say it looks like a good read (just from the cover alone!).
