It's by no means intended to teach someone new to C, but it's also not advertised as doing so. If you want to jump into C with no programming history, keep this in the back of your mind for later, but look for a different book.
This book is perfect, and I'm of the opinion now that I'm going to stick to pocket references for everything but the most alien of subjects. I don't need history, and I don't need step-by-step instructions for installing a compiler/system on my workstation or witty stories about how the author used <insert topic> while he was in college and the horrible results that you're supposed to learn from. Thank you O'Reilly for putting this together.
So, for me, I deem my better books as those I get the most answers from after this hunt for the truth.
I would strongly suggest anyone who really wants to learn this material should have a copy, maybe multiple copies! The price is awesome.. far undervalued in my opinion.
Plus...it's got a cow on the cover...that's the REAL reason we're buying this book right? lol

which are often discussed inadequately in textbooks - the
contrasting scopes of variables in blocks, functions and files, and the
automatic search for prototypes and definitions by the compiler. Does not cover C11.
