This book was absolutely brilliant, it helped teach me the basics of C as well as how to structure it. It doesn't teach you everything, (as that would be impossible!) but it will give you a good base knowledge. It has really helped when I have been looking at other peoples code for Arduino online and understanding what they are doing.
Just an FYI - there are some differences between C and C for Arduino, so i would also recommend getting the beginners guide to Arduino as well (if thats what you are going to use).
Would highly recommend this book to anyone.
One bad thing is it is black and white and that can make it seem abit monotonous at first, but it is exactly the opposite.
It explains in a way that makes it seem so easy and makes you want to read on.
If you are a programmer either professional or hobbyist and want to add C in your toolbox then this book is too slow and fundamental, you will get bored.
language in the detail that is required for self study.
It also helps to get you going by suggesting a very good compiler,I am very pleased with my purchase of this book.

Soy profesional de C/C++ y profesor. Compré este libro porque pensé que en algún momento me daría algo de luz para la enseñanza del lenguaje con mis alumnos neófitos. Estoy acostumbrado a enseñar/utilizar el lenguaje en niveles por encima de los principiantes, por ejemplo, en Estructuras de Datos o Sistemas Embebidos. Por eso sabía que necesitaría ayuda el día que me tocara enseñar el lenguaje desde el principio.
Sin embargo, del libro no obtuve ninguna metodología que pudiera llegar a utilizar en el salón de clases para la enseñanza de C. El libro lo compré hace como un año, y este semestre me tocó impartir C para principiantes, y no obstante, no lo utilicé porque no hallé nada relevante para incorporar a mis clases.
Por cierto, siendo que el libro está dirigido a autodidáctas, no tiene muchos ejercicios. Los pocos que trae no son de ayuda.
El libro no es malo en absoluto. Alguien que quiera aprender el lenguaje, y entienda el inglés, encontrará en este libro mucha ayuda. Pero para el propósito original por el que lo compré, no me sirvió.
Al igual el envio por Amazon Logistics no me convence ya que no hay una consulta de la guia para poder rastrear el pedido y calcular el tiempo de entrega.
You get to the section on functions for example and it explains how they work in terms of printf() which is the first thing you learned. This shows the logical side of C instead of the complex side.
Admittedly it won't make you a pro, but it doesn't make the language seem trivial either.
