    I really doubt that anyone's written a book solely about structs. It's a relatively simple concept that can be covered in a tutorial.

    I don't think the OP was referring to C structs but rather to actual data structures (i.e. queues, stacks, heaps, graphs, etc). My advice is that these exist and therefore should be understood without a particular programming language in mind. Their implementation in C should be fairly simple once you understand what they are and how they operate.

    As for books, your guess is as good as mine, there are a ton out there. Just use Google, or alternatively if you would like to buy one, one of the many online book sellers.
    1. Get rid of gets(). Never ever ever use it again. Replace it with fgets() and use that instead.
    2. Get rid of void main and replace it with int main(void) and return 0 at the end of the function.
    3. Get rid of conio.h and other antiquated DOS crap headers.
    4. Don't cast the return value of malloc, even if you always always always make sure that stdlib.h is included.

    I found this very useful when I was studying.

    Personally, I would start here: List of data structures - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    And then move on to here: Google
