I don't have anything better for Vim reference, but I do not like referring to this book. The writing is of fair quality and the information seems to be accurate, but it is organized in a confusing manner, and topics don't always appear where I expect. This is particularly unfortunate because the index is *terrible* and so I often don't find what I am looking for and must resort to Google.
