First do "git status" so you get a list of things you might want to
(if you got git colors enabled it looks nicer btw, see emmanual's git
blog on in.relation.to)
Then just do
git checkout -- theFileIWantToRollback.txt
More info in the the Pro Git book
section Unmodifying a Modified File
You should also realize that this is a dangerous command: any changes
you made to that file are gone --- you just copied another file over
it. Don't ever use this command unless you absolutely know that you
don't want the file. If you just need to get it out of the way, we'll
go over stashing and branching in the next chapter; these are
generally better ways to go.
Also after working with git a week or 2 on the command line, so we
we can start looking at the GUI integration (Eclipse EGit, IntelliJ).
In the GUI you get a revert/rollback dialog where you can chose which
files more easily.

After some useful and not so useful changes: how can I revert the
doodles to their original state without throwing away the useful work?
git checkout -f whatever
which is supposed to "throw away local changes", but how can I
restrict this? Or do I have to save everything, reset everything, and
copy the goodies back in?
Any better way?
