In my opinion, it's for a beginner programmer. I more experienced programmer may be interested in dryer, more technical book. But this book provides very accessible introductions to many aspects of C while also remaining challenging and interesting. The chapter on pointers was exceptionally well done for what is, in my opinion, a difficult topic.
I'm so glad I purchased this book and would absolutely recommend it. It's much more accessible than "A Book on C" by Al Kelley and Ira Pohl.
What I would expect that K&R do not always bring. I own both texts in print if it is not obvious by now and recommend both for understanding basic and essential concepts, especially about pointers and structs. For the price and heft, Kochan's book can not be beaten and his coverage of OOP especially in this time is appreciated.
No, C is not Object Oriented but I am looking at diving into Objective C (Kochan published a book) when I have learned more data structures. I am using this book for a class now that is Systems Programming and heavy with UNIX and, of course, C. If you buy it, I am certain it will retain value as a reference beyond completion of study.
Typo: Pg 29, on the printf chars of long double. It should be "%Le", not "$Le"
Incorrect example / Typo: Pg 190, Exercise 2. Elapsed days is not correct.
