    188 === Creating a second branch ===
    189 You may want multiple branches in your repository, e.g. for working on separate tasks, or for experimentation, or as a
    190 backup before doing a rebase.
     188=== Working with multiple branches ===
     189If you are working on several tasks, or want to make temporary changes for experimentation,
     190or want to back up your work before doing a rebase or reset, you can do that by having multiple branches
     191in your repository and switching between them. Each branch is a sequence of commits leading up to a
     192specific head commit (which can be referred to as HEAD without confusion since git knows which branch
     193you're referring to by which is checked out). It is very common for git users to switch between branches,
     194and this is a fast operation in git.
