An absolutely excellent primer for C programming. I taught myself from step one off of this book. Entertaining and educational, and the jokes mostly worked!

mostly helpful, but sometimes the tone of the book was overly comedic and lacked actual information, which was frustrating.

Great book for starting out. However, must be followed up by a lot of actual practice to really learn the language.

It was a strain putting up with all those bad jokes. But I persisted. If only it had been a film: If I hadn't walked out, I wouldn't have lost so much time.
