 Abstract Daniel Berlin, Garrett Rooney, Apress, 2006, \\$34.99, ISBN: 1590597532 Subversion is one of the hottest tools to appear recently in configuration management, at least to the extent that anything in this critical field can be considered “hot.” I have not yet worked on a team using Subversion and thus was excited about reviewing Practical Subversion. After reading the book, I find myself disappointed, yet uncertain if it is this book on Subversion or Subversion itself that is the source of my disappointment.The book is well organized and easy to consume, particularly for the software practitioner with no prior Subversion knowledge. Chapter 1 provides an excellent overview, while chapter 2 provides a primer for using Subversion in software development. The next three chapters provide critical information on the administration side of Subversion. There is great complexity in these sections; although it might be possible to simplify the descriptions, this complexity seems to originate from the tool itself.
