Review of Beginning C Posted

Amazon.com just posted my five star review of Beginning C by Ivor Horton. Apress provided a free review copy. From the review:

I read Ivor Horton's Beginning C to gain some familiarity with the C programming language. As a security professional, being able to grasp the essence of C helps me understand security advisories and related discussion of vulnerabilities in exploits. Beginning C is a great book for a person like me, but it also appears to be the right book for someone who wants to become a legitimate C programmer. I highly recommend it to both sorts of readers.

My favorite book on learning C is A Book on C (http://www.amazon.com/Book-Programming-4th-Al-Kelley/dp/0201183994/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1304347216&sr=8-1). All for the same reasons that you specified. Its examples are straight forward and easy to understand. I haven't seen Beginning C. However, I will have to look at it for when I teach C again.
