The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'The C Programming Language':

Reviewer Koos van den Hout wrote:
This is the book for C programming, written by the masters themselves. Not the greatest book to learn programming from, but if you can program in some language of the same level as C then you can learn C from this book and from doing it yourself and experimenting with C.
Reviewer amazon.com wrote:
Just about every C programmer I respect learned C from this book. Unlike many of the 1,000 page doorstops stuffed with CD-ROMs that have become popular, this volume is concise and powerful (if somewhat dangerous) -- like C itself. And it was written by Kernighan himself. Need we say more?
