I wouldn't recommend man for a manual this big. I don't think
I've read zsh's man page in the last decade.

IMO, info is much more appropriate especially considering the
zsh manual there has a very good index and table of contents (i
and I commands with completion are your friends in info, zsh
also has completion for index entries so "info zsh topic<Tab>"
often works).

On some systems, you need to install a zsh-doc package or
equivalent though for the info pages to be available.
