Excelent book for introducing C,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The C Programming Language (2nd Edition) (Paperback)
The C Programming Language is well known book for learning C. Not much can I say, beside the repeated praises. The book is an excelent introdutory book, the authors guide you through the C language in a consistent manner, from the basics (e.g., loop control, function definition, etc) trhough more advanced subjects (pointer manipulation, structure definition, etc).
Throughout the book the authors take care of giving good advices in specific subjects, to prevent you from doing some well known mistakes in the future, which says much about the care the authors gave while writing an introductory book.
Full of good examples, examples that are simple of understanding in nature, but not simplified (stupified) to the extent of not giving any learning base.
Also, in general, the exercices are challenging and well thought.
So I would recommend this book anytime for anyone trying to learn C, and trying to learn it WELL and with a strong/good foundation base.
