Just about every C programmer I respect learned C from this book. Unlike many of the 1,000 page doorstops stuffed with CD-ROMs that have become popular, this volume is concise and powerful (if somewhat dangerous) -- like C itself. And it was written by Kernighan himself. Need we say more?
From the Publisher
This second editon describes C as defined by the ANSI standard. This book is meant to help the reader learn how to program in C. The book assumes some familiarity with basic programming concepts like variables, assignment statements, loops, and functions. A novice programmer should be able to read along and pick up the language.

I just wish the quality of the paper was better also the font they used can sometimes hard to follow specially during the midnight. I really like this and i would buy it again if there is a better quality of print available.
thanks you Dennis and Brian and all other guys whoever worked on this artwork.
It begins with history and origin and proceeds into a tutorial and rather thorough delineation of the language, ending with a few appendices that make it a good reference on the standard(s), practices, conventions, lexical structures and standard routines for regular users and the curious.
