"Essential VIm and Vi editor skills" is a lot more descriptive than "VIm and Vi Tips". The books is nothing more than the description of the basic editing commands. Based on the name, I've expected something more (some real non-obvious tips), but unfortunately, it is not there.

Poorly formatted book, but considering I got it free in a deal that was on, it served as a good introduction to some essential vim.

There are better books on vim out there though!

You can google everythimg that's here. The illustrations are not good. Good thing I got the book for free.
