    VIM is such a behemoth, with so many features with arcane key combinations, that it can be intimidating to learn, let alone become an advanced user and hacker I was skeptical that this book could pull it off in 200 pages, and I was right But I don t think it s designed to be very in depth It s just an overview of some of the popular advanced features If you need depth, that s what the excellent Vim documentation is for But you need to know the features are available and basically how they work, and that s where this book comes in.Although it proved somewhat useful for me, I can t quite say it s well written The English isn t very good, it s poorly edited, some of the explanations are awful, and some of what s covered is pretty vapid The section on folds, for example, is useless An entire chapter is devoted to useful Vim extensions, and yet most of it is just silly games which have no place in a text editor But the problems of this book aren t too bad More annoying and distracting than anything else It s still worth reading.

    This book is filled with a variety of useful explanations and helpful tips for Vim users wanting to improve their efficiency and learn about their editor.Hacking Vim bills itself as a recipe book While it provides quite a few good ones, it seems to be organized like a tutorial, using the examples to walk through some of the cooler features of vim That said, the recipes it provides are very useful.

    Some good stuff early, but glosses over too many commands especially ex commands and the scripting section was not very thorough, but lot s of good tips and I have bookmarked the hell out of it.

    it has a good introduction to vim world, but get lost on it it s not complete in using vim, it s very superficial about scripting and very basic tips about really improve your skills.

    I thought it was made for hackers of vim, but it is like a general overview Still good though.
