What are differences between AssemblyVersion, AssemblyFileVersion and AssemblyInformationalVersion?

There are three assembly version attributes. What are differences? Is it ok if I use AssemblyVersion and ignore the rest?

MSDN says:
  • Specifies the version of the assembly being attributed.
  • Instructs a compiler to use a specific version number for the Win32 file version resource. The Win32 file version is not required to be the same as the assembly's version number.
  • Defines additional version information for an assembly manifest.

Good article here to read.
