Reference...really? This is just a collection of listings of editor commands and keyboard mappings. In this sense, the Emacs pocket reference from the same publisher is better.

really help me to understand what is the vim and other versions small book with alot of information but need to updated with a lot of images to be good reference
I finally decided to learn a console based text editor. I decided on Vim because it is a favorite amongst those that use ruby and go, and also Vi/Vim emphasizes minimalism in contrast to emacs. Being a complete Vim/vi newbie I decided to pick up this quick guide to learn, if nothing else, of what the editor is capable. I found it to be an solid introduction and reference to the power of Vim for all but advanced users.
Found it to be a good reference for working in vim, well organized too.
