To attest to the quality and clarity of the writing, take for example this shortened excerpt:
"Double - Slash comments, also known as C-style comments, tell your compiler to refrain from minding the things that follow them.
Slash-star comments, also known as C-style comments, tell your compiler to refrain from reading the things that follow them.
In the C language, the C-style comment is also used. However, the C-style comment is not really a part of it. A lot of C programmers actually prefer to use the C-style comment in their work and only turn to the C-style comment to block out huge blocks in their program."
Obviously the author is using the same definition to refer to two different concepts. With the knowledge of the behavior of the types of comments, the reader can figure out which "C-style comment" is which, but this is just terrible writing.
There are enough mistakes and poor instances of quality control in this book that it's basically useless as a learning tool without prior knowledge.
I was also not able to find a connection between ICode Academy, which appears to be a different company, and this nameless author. No mention of linking to the website or anything. The only reason I didn't give this a 1 star review is that it has convinced me that I know enough about programming to successfully take a stab at learning C on my own. I'd venture to guess that all of the 5 star reviewers praising the content of this book are either spam bots or were reading a different book.
