    LTCHW alternative

    I'm digging through Learn c the hard way by Zed Shaw and I'm starting to dislike this book.
    I have practical experience with C mostly in embedded system). I wanted to learn something about defensive programming, unit testing, linux environment and stuff...

    Is there anything like this book?

    Defensive programming and unit testing are neutral concepts, not something specific to C.

    You're much more likely to find good general approaches to these topics, rather than ones aimed at specific languages.
    Unit testing for example is a lot easier in some languages than others (as is defensive programming for that matter).

    No I don't have specific recommendations.

    Feel free to add the work "book" to these if you want a dead tree version to hold.

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    If you dislike the book, why do you want something like it?
