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?

O_o

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?

Ha, I see what you did there ;-)

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.
