Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic book every programmer should have on his book shelf.
Reviewed in India on July 24, 2019
This book is written by Kernighan and Ritchie when they were developing a language for Unix systems at AT &T Bell Labs. This language is C. This was the first tutorial and C manual book that every computer enthusiastic should own. Although to read and comprehend this book a prior knowledge of programming is required but not mandatory. This book will be of great help while learning C from online tutorials .
I received this book in a mint condition and delivery was very quick .
