Learning the vi and Vim Editors: Text Processing at Maximum Speed and Power
"O'Reilly Media, Inc.", Jul 15, 2008 - Computers - 494 pages
There's nothing that hard-core Unix and Linux users are more fanatical about than their text editor. Editors are the subject of adoration and worship, or of scorn and ridicule, depending upon whether the topic of discussion is your editor or someone else's.
How to make full use of vim:
Coverage of three other popular vi clones -- nvi, elvis, and vile -- is also included. You'll find several valuable appendixes, including an alphabetical quick reference to both vi and ex mode commands for regular vi and for vim, plus an updated appendix on vi and the Internet.
Learning either vi or vim is required knowledge if you use Linux or Unix, and in either case, reading this book is essential. After reading this book, the choice of editor will be obvious for you too.

I've only just started reading this one, but I've skimmed quite a bit of it for useful tidbits. It's definitely the first good solid book on Vim that I've found. If you're a die hard Unix-head, you should definitely pick this up unless you already know Vim inside and out. Read full review
