Slashdot has the review. "There are some people who aren't going to want to buy this book. Specialists, or people who
want to specialize, likely won't get enough of what they want on any of the subjects here.
Also, this isn't so much a learning guide that will give you exercises and quizzes, so if you're
still at the stage where you need that sort of thing, this book might be a bit rich. If you're
hoping for bleeding-edge stuff, wait for a second edition.
Also, it's taken for granted that the reader understands C pretty well, so if you don't, invest
some time in that area first."
