A good source control system is one of the most important tools for
collaborative software development. Oddly the best-of-breed open
source solution to for years has been CVS, which best described as
merely "almost adequate." Subversion, in it's first release,
addresses most of the shortcomings of CVS as well as a significantly
stronger foundation on which to build an even better solution going
Version Control with Subversion is the perfect resource for
migrating your source repository and, more importantly, your
developers from CVS to Subversion. Those familiar with CVS will find
this book to be a quick and easy read as it translates CVS's usage
patterns into Subversion's.
Developers new to source control will also find this book valuable
for its simple descriptions of basic concepts and gradual introduction
to more advanced topics.

If you are a CVS user, you need to immediately move to Subversion. CVS is damaged goods (no atomic commits, broken tags/branches, broken client/server, etc..). Subversion fixes all of this and takes it a generation further (WebDAV access, sensible branching, excellent diff'ing, etc).
This book does an excellent job of teaching the reader exactly how to effectively use Subversion. Whether new to revision control, coming from CVS or from some other RC system, the Subversion Book provides a very clear and often humorous guide to effectively deploying, administrating and using Subversion.
An excellent book.

The book provided everything I needed to get my own repo up and running. I develop
on a MAC for IOS and Android and have seperate developments for multiple platforms
using Eclipse and Java. All the IDE's have integrated support for subversion and they
all work with my repo. Anyone should be able to get what they need from subversion with this text.

Helped me understand a couple of things while working in a svn installation. good book, it's also available online for free but it is definitely good to keep it in your phone or tablet.
