All vimmers should know three names: Tim Pope, Learn Vim The Hard Way Guy, and Drew Neil.
Tim Pope writes the best vim plugins hands down.
Drew Neil runs the vimcasts website.
Practical Vim is a treasure trove of vim tips.
Any vimmer will take a ton of stuff out of this book.
If you have used vimcasts before, understand that this book is not the same.
...It is 1,000x better.
I really like vimcasts, but Practical Vim knocks it out of the park.
I read this book in 4 days while on vacation. I could not put it down. Then when I got back I skimmed it again.
That is how awesome this book is.
