Like the previous poster mentioned, this book is not for the beginning programmer. Those that are just started with programming may want to look at another language(like python Smile ) or get an easier book on C. The third edition of Beginning C from Apress is a good book for beginner programmers who want to learn C or for those that can't make it through a few pages of K&R2 without their head exploding. I can recall numerous times trying to navigate through the K&R2 book only to put it down out of frustration, only to come back a day, a week, maybe even a couple of months later and finally understand some of the concepts in the book. That being said I really liked the tutorial section at the beginning. Just dive in straight into language without getting wrapped up in all that boring intro to the language stuff. The Appendix's also provide a great refernce to the language and I refer to it often. In fact, IMO, that the most important part of the book(K&R2) is Appendix A & B. I have found over the time that I have been able to sharpen my C programming skills and have had better understanding of programming in general from reading this book. It is truly the "C Bible".
