Certainly. However, if one is the sort of person who hacks on emacs,
one is also the sort of person who would probably learn quite a bit
about git's model from understanding the underlying infrastructure.

Until I really got how git works, the reason certain things are easy
and certain things are hard, why the tools do what they do, etc., did
not make sense to me.

I think the online book I pointed at does a good job for a
sophisticated user. It also provides a better overview of how
relatively more sophisticated operations with the tools (like
rebasing and such) are best performed.
