"C in a Nutshell is nearly a requirement for any serious C programmer. With a large portion of modern education being focused on objected oriented programming it can be difficult to strip away all the trimmings and get down to the nitty-gritty. This book is essentially the important details of C shoved into 600 pages. It includes a very decent introduction to C, but its real virtue is as a reference book."
--Andrew LeCain, Computer Science House
"I learned C the way I was taught to learn languages in college: with a grammar, some examples, and a complier to practice with (BDS C). That left lots of holes in my knowledge of C, holes that C in a Nutshell performs well to fill in...Altogether this book is a great desktop reference for anyone who needs to understand C. Somehow I have managed to read and write C programs without this book, but I will certainly appreciate having it handy in the future-it is now within easy reach of my favorite chair."
