Pipeline Fundamentals book

There is this book about pipeline, which still waits for its release in UK, so I ordered it from amazon.com from US - Production Pipeline Fundamentals for Film and Games.
Quite interesting, I had a Look Inside and it actually allowed me to go quite far to the Version Control section.
So for anyone interested in this subject I would recommend have a look at this book. You can even check couple of parts for free aparently, before you buy your copy. From my experience there are still a lot of people who don`t understand how pipeline should be built. I have to add that this is about diplomacy and communication and being able to sell (explain) your ideas to CG supervisors and the rest of the pipeline team.
