The C Programming Language

The  C Programming Language - Brian W. Kernighan, Dennis M. Ritchie This book was a good reference when I was looking things up about some libraries and their functions. It didn't solve all my problems, but it's very easy to read, almost like a literary book. All the basics are there and they are well explained, I just had some problems when I had a few more specific questions that I had to look up on the Internet, because there wasn't anything helpful in the book.

Overall, if there were a few more examples at some points and it went into a little more detail at parts it would be even better, but still it's a really good guide for anyone's first contact with C.
