Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the reviews of the fourth edition:

"This tutorial is intended for a wide range of readers, from nonprogrammers to those with programming experience who don’t know the C language. The book’s goal is to be a comprehensive text that will lead the prospective programmer from his or her starting point all the way to a career in programming. … It also gives a good overview of the process of program creation, including a section on dealing with errors." (William Fahle, ACM Computing Reviews, Vol. 49 (4), April, 2008)
