AWESOME BOOK IF YOU CAN DIGEST IT!

My FIRST point: For the Indian students, it is better to start off with a C book written by a popular local author (Let Us C by Yashavant Kanetkar or Programming in ANSI C by E. Balaguruswamy or any other local C book you and your friends are comfortable with). It should be sufficient for your College exams and give you an overview of some of the commonly used features of C without right away scaring you. Only after your College grades are assured, it is alright to dive into this book. This book will truly teach you how to program in C.

My FIRST point: For the Indian students, it is better to start off with a C book written by a popular local author (Let Us C by Yashavant Kanetkar or Programming in ANSI C by E. Balaguruswamy or any other local C book you and your friends are comfortable with). It should be sufficient for your College exams and give you an overview of some of the commonly used features of C without right away scaring you. Only after your College grades are assured, it is alright to dive into this book. This book will truly teach you how to program in C.

BOOK REVIEW: From an undergrad perspective, one who has no prior knowledge of programming, this book can be a little difficult to get into right away. Generally this book assumes that the reader is familiar (to a GREAT DEGREE) with the nuances of a programming language already, and presents the content and tutorial on C likewise. This book is therefore not suitable for absolute newbies.

The language and explanation of the book is lucid and crystal clear and the pace is faster than ANY other C Programming book on the market. This book was written by Kernighan and Ritchie, and Dennis Ritchie is the CREATOR OF C PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE. So, when the creator of the language himself is involved you know that the explanation would be efficient (ratio of explanation to the amount of time time taken to explain) and succinct. Having said that, here are the advantages and disadvantages of this particular book.

ADVANTAGES:
1.0 Learn this and digest this book before you graduate, and you can be confident that YOU KNOW C, at least a decent amount of it anyway.

2.0 This book takes an algorithm and discusses how it implemented in C. Then, they progressively discuss how the implementation is made more efficient by tweaking the code with the insights in C we have gained so far. This is the best way of learning a programming language in my opinion.

3.0 THE MOST CONCISE BOOK ON C PROGRAMMING EVER WRITTEN.

4.0 Appendices are wonderful, useful and practical.

DISADVANTAGES:
1.0 VERY VERY FAST PACED. MOST STUDENTS WILL HAVE A HARD TIME CATCHING UP, ESPECIALLY THOSE WITH NO PRIOR EXPOSURE TO PROGRAMMING. THEREFORE, NOT THE FIRST C PROGRAMMING BOOK FOR THE GENERAL STUDENT WITH NO BACKGROUND IN PROGRAMMING.

2.0 EASY TO LOSE INTEREST IN THE BOOK, ESPECIALLY WHEN READING FOR THE FIRST TIME, AS THE AUTHOR TREATS THE READER AS SOMEONE EXPERIENCED IN PROGRAMMING, WHICH IS NOT THE CASE FOR THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE UNDER GRAD STUDENTS HERE IN INDIA.

FINAL THOUGHTS:
1.0 Good book to keep in library, good to look into FOR REFERENCE. Must buy for anyone wishing to master C programming.

2.0 In time the reader (who will mature in programming from his first exposure to this book) will come to appreciate the genius of this book.

3.0 Be ready to invest in any other book written by ano of the Indian authors(Kanetkar, Balaguruswamy etc.), if you are an absolute newbie.

It's too precious, can't miss it!

Written by Dennis Ritchie (who originally designed and implemented the language) and Brian Kernighan, this is the original and authoritative reference to the C programming language.

The success of the C language is widely attributed to this book. Since the book first appeared in 1978, it has been the best learning resource for the C language for over two decades and it hasn't yet lost its shine.

Elegant writing style, concise, clear and informative. Though at some places the coding-style and conventions may be differ from those used today, mainly because the book is far too old, this edit...

Elegant writing style, concise, clear and informative. Though at some places the coding-style and conventions may be differ from those used today, mainly because the book is far too old, this edition being over 20 years old.

If you are into C, you can't afford to miss this book, it's too precious.

This book DOES NOT covers Data Structure (since often C and data structure are taught together). If you are looking for a Data Structure book, I suggest read 'Data Structures Using C', by Tenenbaum, et al. Here:

Not for beginners!

The book is awesome. The authors tell you every thing in the book about C, every minute detail of the language in just 270 pages! But the book is not for beginners as the book doesn't go into explaining stuff in very detail as the other books do, like giving examples telling you exceptions and things like that. The authors expect you to figure them out on your own, by coding in C.They will touch upon, or I would say familiarize you with every thing the language offers to us.

I would suggest you to go for this book if you have some programming background. If you are new to programming you will develop "HATRED" towards programming, which could be really bad especially if you had decided to pursue computers as a career.

The best book on C. Dennis Ritchie is great.

This is the best book on C. It doesn't matter whether you want it for learning C or you want it as a reference. It doesn't matter whether you are a beginner, an expert, a teacher or a professional - this book serves all.

As it is written by the creator of the language Dennis Ritchie, this books cover every feature of the language in less than 300 pages. He has said in the book-

"C is a small language, and is not well served with a big book."

The book is compact, yet it is comprehensive. It is great for beginner too. It expects you to have some programming background but if...

The book is compact, yet it is comprehensive. It is great for beginner too. It expects you to have some programming background but if you don't have any prior experience in programming you still can understand it with a little more effort.

This book came out in 1988, so it covers the ANSI C standard but it lacks the latest ISO C11 standard. But it won't be a problem as language hasn't changed much. Just a quick study of Wikipedia article on C11 will be enough for you to learn all the changes that have taken place in the language.

So just buy this book. Flipkart's delivery is great.

Don't buy. If newbie don't want to ruin their future....

After reading my title, you may wonder why not to buy the bible of C language. I know the fact that this book is written by the writers of the language. However this book is now too old.

This book uses ANSI. ANSI was the version of C used before it was ISO standardized. (Sorry for spells).

Using this book you are going to learn the outdated version of the language. Even Dennis g who is dead stopped using the ANSI version. This book is for reference, or for people who want to know how this language started. Using this book, newbies are ruining their future much like those sh*it let us boo...

Of course this book is better then kanetkar shits. I am not going to explain why kanetkar books are shit, just keep in mind his books use bad coding style. Search it yourself.

I strongly advice you to stop learning from this book. This is why Indian programmers don't succeed.

Must read for programmers who have an amateurish programming experience

People who wish to strengthen their core basics in C must read this book. Helps in the long run. Since C is the most basic language, before learning other HLL or OOPs languages, it pays to read this book before trying them. (View complete review)

Bible of C

Great Book!!
What can I say about the book and its authors- inventors of C and UNIX itself. !! Take your time to read it. It is short and precise.Don't miss anything.
The quality of print is equally good. Thanks Flipkart.

Good Book for C Learners :)

Really great book from the maker of C Language :) A Must Have choice...I have reac many c books but this is simple and clear. Everything is point to point. But my advice is this is not for New-Bie's. New Comers should first look google for simplest C programs and then refer this book. (View complete review)
