When I learn something new I often get into this frenzy of consumption of knowledge where I need to read every book, article, video on the topic I can get my hands on. Every new book is a promise of magnificent and wondrous abilities which are just waiting to be learnt just a couple of pages away. I imagine myself inbued of this new power to be more awesome at coding and I can’t help to feel giddy with excitement.
Of course the excitement fades eventually and all that’s left then is the determination to finish what I started. Finishing things. What a great skill to practice. If you haven’t got around setting up your new year’s resolution that one might be it.
Back to topic. As you may have noticed from my favorite new topic in this blog, for the past few months I’ve been investing most of my dad free time learning more about vim. Thus I’ve read a bunch of books and I’m in a great place to give you some recommendations.
Here are my favorite books on vim in the order in which I read them with some brief reviews and some advice on whether any of these books is the right one for you.
