I have known this book since my undergrad studies and happen to have a look at it back then once or twice for reference. Now, after so many years, I had to revise C language for some basic terminology. Of all the books I've referred to study C back in the days, how I wished I had given a deeper look into the pages of this book!

The author has a great engaging style of explanation with suitable examples to help us grasp the concepts easily. Unlike many programming books out there laden with

It is a very good book for beginners to learn the concept of C language. The book starts with the history of C language and then go step by step forward to teach all the concepts such as Loops, Decision making, Arrays, Pointers, Functions, Recursion, C preprocessor, Structures, Strings, Console input/output, Unions, etc. There are so many examples given in this book. So, beginners will definitely benefit from this book.

This is this right book for beginners, not just for C, but for programming itself. Author's style is simple and has explained the concepts in a way that's is easy to assimilate.
Don't miss the exercises at the end of each chapter!

A beginner guide to programming in C. I helped to understand in very simple to understand English. This book didn't use difficult English words or kind of that to avoid complication in understanding the C language. If you just started to learn English then you'll have no issue in understanding terms and sentences used in the book. It can build foundation for understanding C language.

Nice book well explained in details...
but not about everything...
The best chapter that i liked was that of function and pointers, which kanethkar had explained very very well...
But he had not given all the functions that we can use in C/C++
Moreover, he had not explained about how to pass commands in CMD...

Probably the best C Programming book for beginners. It describes every concept in detail including C Arrays and Strings. Filing concepts were of intermediate level so were Bitwise operations. Book was more Linux oriented but Windows related programs and concepts are also listed. This book is so easy that it can be taught at school level.

Perfect book for newbies, who enter get into programming through the windows machines, teaches you about making calls to dos interrupts, apart from teaching c coding skills in an easy to understand way.
A very nice book for learners of C Programming .
