This book is not "for Dummies". It assumes that you already have some knowledge of structured programming languages (i.e. Pascal). For example, this book spends four well-written pages explaining everything you need to know about functions. If you don't know what a function is, this will clearly not be enough. However, if you do know about functions, this book will not drone on and on for an entire chapter or two on the subject like some of the foot-crunching tomes the size of an encyclopdia. The book is expensive ($40) for its size (approx. 250pgs.), but it is worth every penny. To quote the authors: "C is not a big language, and it is not served well by a big book." As a bonus, almost anything you need to know about C can be found in seconds using the excellent index. It should be noted that this is a language reference and will NOT tell you how to use your editing environment or compiler. In summary, intermediate or advanced programmers should be able to learn C with reasonable proficiency in a short amount of time. --By firstname.lastname@example.org on November 8, 1997

So as we all know this books written by C's fathers.
The book is Amazing but you cant read if you just started to learn C.
but if your pointer, dynamic memory & other concept are clear. then I recommend you this book.
honestly, i didn't read the entire book but some chapter of beginning are lovely.
There is no cons but NOTE: this is not a tutorial book or not for beginners.
if your beginner then you will hate this book.
for beginners, I prefer Let us C
pro: at time NICE:
As for the book, there are a plethora of comcepts made into a compact volume, with no illustrations, so you need to bear with boring pages but it's all worth it. Happy Reading!
