It is not a manual on how to use Vim. You should be familiar with editing text in Vim and be familiar with concepts like "buffer," "window," and "insert mode" before beginning this book.
Even while Vim is tremendously strong right out of the box, it won't perform to its full potential until you take the time to adapt it to your unique workstyle, working habits, and handwriting.
You will learn about Vimscript, the primary scripting language used to personalize Vim, in this book. The rest of your time in Vim will be more productive since you'll be able to shape it into an editor that meets your unique requirements for text editing.
