If you are new to C and new to programming in general, this book will be very useful for you. The style is simple, the programs are not too complicated and the concepts are explaind gradually.
While it doesn't explain all that is needed to master the standard C library, this book will make you feel confortable with the language and will give you some knowledge to follow more advanced and acclaimed C books. There is nothing advanced here, just an honest introduction to the language. So, while this book is appropriate for beginners, could be not well suited for the veteran programmers, who may look for more advanced concepts in order to really master the language.
One of the major lacks, when speaking about C books, is a too simplicistic explanation of ponters. This book is no exception. It won't give you a deep explanation about ponters. But it explains them well, in an easy way fully understandable by people who have little or no programming experience. How to use them proficiently is not in the scope of the book, I suppose. After all, it worths the money it costs. So if you don't have big expectations from a programming language book, buy it without hesitation. Recommended.
