Hello World! I bought this book because I love console stuff and vim which is one of the best tools ever made (before this book I used it as editor for little programs and in /etc/ directory :) ). I read practical C programming made by this author and I was delighted with it, so I gave a shot and bought another his book. Book itself is written in simply ,clear, nice English [but not primitive one !](I'm not native English speaker so it's quite important for me ;) ), things are as simple as it's possible. Book itself is full of tricks and tips, it's nice but sometimes you might feel a little bit overwhelmed with all this commands, keymapping and so on. Programmers will definitely find useful scripts and tips. Right now I cannot image programming without vim, if you are afraid that in world of IDE vim is worthless you are totally wrong, you can still use vim like keymapps and command with plugins (eg. varpper for eclipse), and it's much much more powerful than standard editor! To sum up I think that every non-expert vim user should read at least one of this kind of book.
There are a lot of neat tips and helpful examples in the book. For example, I didn't know you could edit a .tar.gz file directly. The author also walks you through how to clean up a ragged text file or reformat a text file so you can pass it off to a word processor.There are more than a few typos and grammatical errors (your vs. you're, space needed after some punctuation, Jack Benny definition typo), but nothing that prevented the meaning from coming across.Worth the price.
Nice book, but too many typos and errors. A thorough proofreading is definitely desirable!
Considering the cost , this is an ok book. I can't say I was blown away by the content, but I did learn a thing or two. Would recommend doing the vimtutor first and then finding other books.
