NOTE ABOUT WINDOWS VISTA/WINDOWS 7: There are many FREE compiler's that work with this book available to download! Before I type my review I realize that it is highly possible that some people may be contemplating purchasing this book, but wondering if they can find a compiler to use with this book on modern Windows Vista/Windows 7 computers. The answer is yes there are many FREE compilers my personal favorite is listed at the end of this review.If you use Linux you will most probably already have the gcc compiler installed on your system!C is my favorited programming language. C came before C++ and in my opinion gets less attention these days than it should! I also know some C++ and BASIC(QBASIC, yabasic, and Liberty BASIC)-I don't recomend learning basic these days. I use C and sometimes C++ on both Windows and Linux(Ubuntu) systems and in the past have used Red Hat and Mandrake Linux with C++.This is a great book for learning C if you have little or no programming experience, and even if you have some experience with another programming language. I have never read the "C for Dummies" by the same author, but if you have any trouble following this book the other is supposed to be slower paced and explain things in a more understandable way.The author does an amazing job at balancing hummor and information. I hope this author, the author of the first for Dummies book, publishes some more C books and hopefully a couple books on Intel and AMD assemly.If you know how to use a computer and maybe have programmed a little in C++ or another language this book, "C All-In-One Desk Reference" will probably be easy for you to follow.
