About the Author

Brian W. Kernighan is a professor in the Department of Computer Science at Princeton University. His many books include Millions, Billions, Zillions (Princeton) and the computing classic The C Programming Language (Prentice Hall).
Disambiguation Notice:

(eng) "The C Programming Language" and "The C Programming Language, Second Edition" should not be combined as one work. The languages described are significantly different: K&R C in one case, ANSI C in the other. Any variant of the title with "second", "2nd", "ANSI" or "ISO" in the title almost certainly refers to the second edition. K&R C is these days of only historical interest, while ANSI C is a very important language. If you have any book about C , Objective C, C# etc, please do not combine it with either edition of "The C Programming Language". Also Brian Kernighan should not be combined with the "author" Brian Kernighan and Dennis Ritchie.

This is a good entry point for learning the C language, provided that you already have some programming experience. It's terse without sacrificing detail. Supplementary reading is required if you wish to learn more about e.g. C compilers, debugging under Linux, socket programming, including external libraries and how to properly modularise C programs, but it is evident that those subjects simply lie outside of the scope of this work, and that's fine.

A must read for anyone serious about learning Golang.

Solid book it delivers what it promise.

A history that can be understood as a very high level introduction to operative systems and UNIX in particular.

And a memoir, that while it is not particularly well written it manages to convey some of the feelings of the author when it comes to his time at Bell Labs.
