    Expert C Programming by Peter van Linden

    Amazon.com: Expert C Programming (9780131774292): Peter van der Linden: Books

    Hi all. Once Ive "mastered" C, I plan to delve into any more secrets it has to offer. Im assuming this one is the ultimate experts guide into C. Can anyone give me a review on this one? Will it be worth my while? Is it concisely well written? Can I genuinly take away more knowledge in the language than before? Will it help all future coding?

    There is apparently a chapter titled "You know C, so C++ is easy.". I wouldn't trust any book that said that regardless of the language it claims to teach.

    If free, it might be worth your money.
    You do realize it is a 18 years old book about ANSI C?

    Im hoping the difference between C89 and C99/C11 is not on a large level. Besides, if reading through, Ill bear in mind the standards changed etc...

    Anyway, so far I get the feeling its not a big gain to read.
