    Let Us C is a popular introductory book to the world of C programming. Its simple and approachable style has kept it a popular resource for newbies for many years.

    Summary Of The Book

    With the expanding horizon of digital technology, there is also an increasing need for software professionals with a good command of a variety of programming languages. The C language is one of the basic skill sets in a programmer’s portfolio.

    There has been an explosion in the number of programming languages and different development platforms. However, the C programming language has retained its popularity across the decades.

    Let Us C is a great resource from which one can learn C programming. It does not assume any previous knowledge of C or even the basics of programming. It covers everything from basic programming concepts and fundamental C programming constructs.

    The book explains basic concepts like data types and control structures, decision control structure and loops, creating functions and using the standard C library. It also covers C preprocessor directives, handling strings, and error handling.

    It also discusses C programming under different environments like Windows and Linux. The book uses a lot of programming examples to help the reader gain a deeper understanding of the various C features.

    This book also aims to help prepare readers not just for the theoretical exams, but also the practical ones. It builds their C programming skills. It also helps in getting through job interviews. There is a separate section in the book that discusses the most Frequently Asked Questions in job interviews.

    This is the 13th edition of the book and it covers all levels of C programming, from basic to intermediate and advanced levels of expertise. With clear concept coverage, simple instructions and many illustrative examples, Let Us C teaches programming and C language features effectively and easily.

    never a book for beginners

    The book might be good for experienced C programmer especially for the purpose of cracking objective questions. It really helps refining the basic details of C language e.g. operator precedence etc. . However, the newbies might never want it to have it as his/her first book. For the first reading the following book is advised :
    This is very standard book and written by DENNI...

    This book will ruin your understanding, not recommended at all

    This book is followed by most of the engineering students (specially big hit in non-premier colleges) in our country. The reasons may be many: written by an IITian, having lots of code samples (most even dont compile on various compilers) etc etc. But I have found this book really a joke!!

    Author (and may be your seniors too) may try to convince you that there is nothing beyond this book in this ocean of C but trust me, this book will ruin your career. You will realize that when you will com...

    avoid at all cost, even if your college prescribes it!

    I don't understand why this book is so hugely popular! Its highly harmful if you want to sustain a career in IT.
    This is a typical example of how you should never write code.
    It teaches bad programming style...doesn't care about standards and is full of toy examples that do no good when you sit for serious coding.
    My suggestion (and also suggested by many reputed coders): go for a book called "C programming - a modern approach" by K. N. King (2nd ed.) and when you have grasped the basics and...

    Boon for beginners

    An upto date product by Flip kart.
    Personally I found the book quite helpful.From c basics to decision control and further to functions and pointers, the theory is thoroughly explained.
    The book comes with a plethora of examples therefore making it very easy to understand for beginners.
    And as always delivery by flip-kart is quick.

    At first glance it appears to be a standard book. However, if read feels like bullshit. This book in particular is out-dated, overly simplistic, and not as comprehensive as other books.

    This is the book that advocates learning with Turbo C. A 24 year old compiler.

    "In my opinion, even today there isn't any learning environment that can beat Turbo C/C++ for simplicity."

    In preface to it I would love to say that:

    This is profoundly, inexcusably, and perhaps criminally, wrong. People w...

    Melody of Love & Wonder

    I started my programming career with BASIC and after learning about 10 programming languages I still remember the wonder of those days while I was reading 'Let Us C'. I loved it and got a deep realization of how to write a good book. No matter which technology you use or which coding style you follow, there is always something beyond it and that is the ability of writing a captivating textbook.
    I completed this book like a Dan Brown thriller and jumped to another Kanetkar book. I don't think ...

    Sincere Advise! Please read this before Buying!!

    This book is an extremely crude treatment of C language delivered in the most ugly fashion imaginable with codes that run only in Turbo C(1991). Do not buy this. You will finish the boo k and think you have learnt many things but the reality is that you will not be able to write a single line of code in real Application Development. If you really want to learn C in most proffessional way follow Schildt C The Complete Reference. TRUST ME I HAVE READ BOTH and a lot more on the subject.

    If u know what is i++; then don't buy this book!

    I read this book in my first year of B.Tech; and since then developed a repulsion for this. It may teach you basic concepts in C; but do not expect to understand complex topics like pointers.
    The best book for C is "ANSI C Programming Language" by Late Sir Dennis Ritchie (he created it!).

    This is trash.

    Don't waster your time or money on this. The book is a filthy mashup of the most useless things one could think of. The author quibbles with the syntax and has nothing useful to say. It is surprising how it survives eight editions. The very things you are told not to worry about, for example, interpreting expressions like ++c--++, y----++, and so on, because such evaluation depends on how the compiler parses expressions, and has nothing to do with programming, fills the book from cover to cover.
