Brian Kernigan wrote the book basic to the C Programming Language. His Original book is basic and this is the next step explaining the ANSI version. Surprised to find that the book I received was printed in India.

horrible!! don't buy!!

by Beverly C on Oct 18, 2012

Some of these sellers trick you saying it ships from USA, buyer beware. I don't know how you can verify, this shipped from INDIA!! It took over a week to receive and was shipped by DHL which is INTERNATIONAL not as great as domestic UPS, FEDEX or USPS.

Computer Programming Classic

Must have on every programmer's bookshelf. Great for programmers who want to see how things work under the hood.


A very old book!

I thought this book might help with my c assignment but it is outdated. The file IO is no longer relevant. Some code is still usefull, but all in all, it's to old to purchase.


The programmer's bible!

by mwksoul on Jun 15, 2008

As a tech lover, searching to know more about computers I wanted to learn a powerful, but relatively easy programming language. I chose C. Then I searched for a book on the net. This one was the book with more references and people were saying it was the best. After reading it, I can only say one thing: This book is AMAZING! You learn things quickly (starting with easy things and scaling to awesome tricks) and become able to create almost anything with it. If you don't know, Windows, Linux and many applications are at least partly programmed with C. If think they didn't choose it without thinking well before, so... But if you really want to know better what I mean, just buy the book and see for yourself.
