I explain that too in the text.  Look for "This also explains why `git
pull' does not rebase by default."

See also the part about aliases, where I show a sample alias of:

    up = pull --ff-only --stat --all

and you can change that `--ff-only' to `--rebase'.

(The `--ff-only' is also explained in the text.)
