C Programming Language introduces you to the most commonly used programming language, one that has been the basis for many other versions over the years. It is a great book, not just for beginning programmers, but also for computer users who would want to have an idea what is happening behind the scenes as they work with various computer programs. In this book, you are going to learn what the C programming language entails, how to write conditions, expressions, statements and even commands, for the language to perform its functions efficiently. You will learn too how to organize relevant expressions so that after compilation and execution, the computer returns useful results and not error messages. Additionally, this book details the data types that you need for the C language and how to present it as well.

You gotta be kidding!
By Robert in Rhode Island
This is a self published book that supposedly teaches the C programming language. The book is very superficial and contains very little actual C code. The kindle and print versions appear to have been formatted with Microsoft Word, There are numerous formatting issues, especially within the little bits of code. Many C function names have been inappropriately capitalized, probably by auto-correct. If you tried using such code in program, it would not compile.
If you know nothing about programming, or do not know any other programming language, this book will not teach you much. It certainly will not teach you how to program with C, as there is no significant explanation of programming plus there is little code in C that does anything.
If you have some programming experience and you know another language, you might get a hint of information about C, but again you would be hard pressed to write a program in C.
I looked at the book for possible use as a high level introduction to C in a college course. Even at the current Kindle cost of $0.00, it was not even worth the effort of using 1-click ordering.
As far as many of the glowing 5 star reviews for this book, I do not know what they are talking about. This book will not help you write a web page, it will not teach you about data structures such as stacks, it does not teach C++. I could cite similar problems with many of the other 5 star reviews. I noticed that many of the 5-star reviews were done in a very short period of time. Further, looking at the other reviews done by many of these reviewers, I found that they were bulk reviewing many free, self published Kindle books in a very short period of time. Some were even reviewing the same books covering divergent subject areas. I personally question many of those reviews.

This book is a scam.
By Hawkeye Nerd
I'm suspicious of all of the 5-star reviews. I don't believe that they are real.
This book appears to have been self-published and written by somebody whose native language is not English. It's poorly organized, poorly written, and while it is supposed to be a "step-by-step" guide, it appears to be a random collection of information. And it's the first programming language book I've ever seen that includes almost NO CODE. Capitalization of keywords and identifiers is frequently incorrect. And in the conclusion, when the author refers to his book, he gets the title of his own book wrong. Don't even spend 99 cents on the Kindle edition.

This is a surprisingly easy to read book
By Katharine Hepburn
This is a surprisingly easy to read book. It's an oldie, but it's worth reading to understand C from the creator's perspective. These days I mostly use C# and C++, but C is the base for a lot of the languages and systems in place today. It's also good to know for embedded work. Author doesn't try to be academic, overbearing or condescending, so it's a pretty good read. It's very slim, but seems to cover everything one would need to know about C (it's not a big language to begin with.
