This books is for you only if :

1) You are completely new to C.
2) Have no prior or little knowledge or programming.
3) Want to develop logical thinking with c programming.

The author explains basic programming concepts in much detail to get you started with programming.
If you have knowledge of other programming language then you might be familiar with for loops and if statements.
In that case you can get another book for quick translation. This books assumes that you haven't done any programming before.
Several basic data types and control statements are covered in depth.
I would recommend to get a copy of Let us C solutions for practice problems too.

I am totally at a loss at figuring out this ridiculous excuse for a book had managed to survive eight editions...this is an insult and and a mockery to the C language and to everyone who is serious and curious enough to learn it,in these days dominated by the "easier" C# , Java &co.
There is actually a dire need for a comprehensive, accurate, engaging and fun to read book on C (the one I dream about would be one introducing at the same time operating system and C programming, or embedded programming and C) so even a mediocre text would be welcome, but reading this one will be a major waste of time or money for any reader, and as other have noted might even be dangerous as it will lull you into the illusion of knowing the fundamentals of C programming while you have barely scratched its surface.
This book is so bad that I don 't even know where to start to bash it.. it's a superficial, boring, wordy descriprion of the syntax illustrated by stupidly simple examples, it won't teach you neither programming conceps nor the richness , intricacies and richness of the language. Being such an "essential" language, C can be made to appear deceptively simple. That's exactly what this text does. Dynamic memory allocation is barely mentioned, pointers get just a cursory treatment.. no mention whatsoever about data structures.. basically all you can do after wading through the hundreds of pages of this text is writing for loops and if conditionals...
As if this was not enough, this book is abysmally obsolete. The author has evidently never taked the trouble to update his text through the many editions.. it's still about 16 bit integers and turbo c/c++, and towards the end it talks about win32 programming (yeah the hungarian notation ridden basic windows API..

This is a excellent book that uses a simple language. One of the few technical books that demystifies the many jargons in C.

I learnt my C programming from this book and count as one of the best books I have read.

Many technical authors focus on making the reader think that the author is a geek and too good for mortals to understand. This author does a really good job of making you the geek.

Before reading this book, my head would spin when somebody made use of technical C jargon. After reading this book, I was totally comfortable with all those jargon.

Format: Paperback
The 8th updated edition of a classic considered a foundation work in C programming is now available, and any college-level or technical library strong in C programming will find the new edition has been extensively edited, revised, and updated, complete with a CD-ROM added with more examples. From hundreds of step-by-step examples and exercises for self-study to a basic coverage focusing on both the latest techniques and introductory material for beginners, LET US C is a reference any computer library must have.

I am unable to do a full review but I still can give a review of the first hundred pages. Great book! It is an easy to understand book and explains everything about the C language in a way where anyone (including people who have no programming experience) can understand with no hassle! Great book!
