I'm a recent buyer and already have gone through this book. It's an important part of my programming-book library. Bravo, Brian Gough. Nice work.
A person getting into C coding should buy this one in the first group of books. Doubly amazing is to find a technical book this good for this little money.
This small book, and that is one of its great charms, is perfect. It REALLY helped me make the transition and I have been very sucessfully building code on Ubuntu Linux and Win XP (MinGW) with GCC. Once up and running the more subtle features can be found on the web at the GNU website (an example for me was how to switch off certain warnings such as -Wno-unused).
Though GCC is intrinsically tied to Linux the information in the book is readily translatable to the MinGW-Win XP environment.
I wrote that in 2009 and five years later, I want to heartily endorse this book. It is simply fantastic value for money. It is clearly written and allowed me to completely abandon Windows and move exclusively to Linux.
