Use tldr

tldr is a tool for reading short and concise versions of man-pages.

There are several implementation, please see the tldr website for a complete list.

Hence the name, which is short for:

Too long; Didn’t read

You can (as I learned with man-pages back in the day) do:

$ tldr tldr

Command-line client for tldr-pages.
Displays simplified and community-driven man pages.
