This book/CD package is called 'The Hard Way, ' but it's really quite easy: it just requires discipline, practice, and persistence. Shaw teaches you how to write modern, clean, clear C code through dozens of exercises, most on two pages
Zed Shaw has crafted the perfect course for the beginning C programmer eager to advance their skills in any language. Follow it and you will learn the many skills early and junior programmers need to succeed-just like the hundreds of thousands of programmers Zed has taught to date! You bring discipline, commitment, persistence, and experience with any programming language; the author supplies everything else. In Learn C the Hard Way, you'll learn C by working through 52 brilliantly crafted exercises. Watch Zed Shaw's teaching video and read the exercise. Type his code precisely. (No copying and pasting!) Fix your mistakes. Watch the programs run. As you do, you'll learn what good, modern C programs look like; how to think more effectively about code; and how to find and fix mistakes far more efficiently. Most importantly, you'll master rigorous defensive programming techniques, so you can use any language to create software that protects itself from malicious activity and defects.
