Mastering Vim Quickly: From WTF to OMG in no time
Exiting Mastering Vim Quickly
One of the beautiful things about learning Vim is the fact that you don't need to know everything. You only need to understand a few critically important concepts that provide most of the value.
If you invest the time and energy necessary to learn these concepts, you'll easily be in the top 1% of the human population when it comes to productivity in coding/programming/text editing.
Instead of trying to absorb all of the Vim knowledge- and there's really a lot out there -use this book to get what matters the most.
