    Great book for someone new to programming

    This book is organized in the classic 'Teach Yourself' style. You start out with a small amount of programming commands and slowly throughout the book you build on knowledge learned in the previous chapters. All the while you're completing exercises to strenthin your understanding. The only downside to this book is that it doesn't come with a C compiler.

    Great Book!!!!!!!

    This book is a great book, the first time I really picked up this up I went to sleep at 3:00 in the morning because it was actually insteresting. You get excited when you see your first C program working 'hello world!' (at least for me it was), because was a novice in programming.
