Steve Coe gives the GNU Emacs Pocket Reference a "thumbs up" for handiness, but notes this is a title better suited for jogging the memory than learning everything there is to know about what Neal Stephenson calls "The Thermonuclear Text Editor."

"If you're serious about learning Emacs and money is no object, I would say to check out Learning GNU Emacs first before picking this book up.

If you're short of cash however, or just want a handy reference to sling in your backpack or pocket to help steer you where you want to go, or if you're a hardened Emacs veteran who occasionally suffers brainfade, the "GNU Emacs Pocket Reference" is a terrific little book. Highly Recommended."
