"The author of this book has obvious and deep roots in teaching. The book is an impressive 832 pages in length. I believe that the size is warranted because of the detail that is needed for a full understanding of the language.

"The contents
832 pages, 27 chapters, 5 appendices. The reader will find a lot of helpful content in this expansive book.

"This corpus builds up, layer-by-layer, the concepts required to master the C programming language. Each chapter is structured with its contents first, some questions and answers (read as FAQ) and finally reinforcement exercises.

"If read in strict sequence, this book is an excellent investment for a student on a C programming course. Starting from the very basics such as the history of the language, how to compile programs and “hello world”, the book progresses from the general (I.O, expressions, loops, types etc.) and then tackles advanced issues such as pointers and arrays, low-level programming and program design."
