5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for any serious Computer Scientist, 24 Oct. 2003
This review is from: The C Programming Language (2nd Edition) (Paperback)
This book is frequently sited in reading lists as a "Must have", which I found difficult to understand until I purchased it. The book as a whole is well written, clear and concise; the programs used within the text are useful, elegant, simple and well written.
Even if you have no intension of ever using C I recommend that you read this book, well written texts on programming languages are like gold dust, they are extremely hard to come by, and are a pleasure to read.
On a final note though I would say that this is not a text for beginner programmers unless you have someone to hand to explain certain things within the text to you. The book makes certain assumptions about the reader, including a knowledge of universal programming language features such as conditionals, loops, data structures and so on. However, if you learn from this book in combination with a more begginer-oriented text I can assure you'll be a more than decent C programmer at the end.
