This book had no explicit sexual content nor gang-related violence. However, it is amazing. If you want to learn C then read this book.
Michael Galloway
Out of the dozens of programming books I have read, this one is still one of the best. It is the rare combination of an accessible, yet in-depth tutorial and a reference book.

I'm just getting into this book, but so far it's excellent. It reads like I went into the future and wrote a book to teach myself C. ...more

Well, great supplement for K&R.

Very clear and concise, and had many code samples. Also gave a decent overview of how each of the concepts works. I would recommend this book.

Great book, read it in college and in my opinion it was a better book than Kernighan and Ritchie -- heresy I know. One thing different about this book from other C programming books of it's time is that it will give you a good intro to c11 threads and other c11 concepts.

I would highly recommend it at the time it was published.

This book has been out for a while (1984). Usually technical books don't weather well but this one is still as relevant and as informative as it was in 1984. A software engineer that I respect recommended this book to me and I'm glad for it. ...more

great introduction to programming and C, do not recommend if you can already program, C is a pretty easy language, this is more teaching how to program while using C, but also leagues beyond zed shaw (who is awful lmao)

Najlepsza jaką można znaleźć w tym temacie. "Z Praty nawet miotła nauczyłaby się programować".
Niektóre rozdziały czytałem kilka razy i pewnie niektóre przeczytam w przyszłości ponownie. Wykonałem ok 90 % ćwiczeń. Teraz w końcu skończyłem czytać "od deski do deski" dla pełnego uporządkowania wiedzy. Tak, jestem zadowolony z siebie :P

Detailed but it could be better. No mention for multi-threading which is kind of a bummer.

A very complete - if dry - compendium on the C language.

This is the best book if you are just starting out to learn C++. I used it long ago when I was learning C++ and it is still available, now in its 5th edition.
