For software engineers and computer programmers who are writing, developing, testing, debugging software on either IBM PCs or Unix systems. Written for experienced C programmers who want to quickly pick up some of the insights and techniques of experts and master the fine arts of ANSI C, this volume passes on the wisdom of a highly experienced C compiler writer and his colleagues to help programmers reach new heights, and avoid common software pitfalls along the way. Using an original approach and a humorous style that makes deep knowledge both easy and accessible, it gathers into one place, tips, hints, shortcuts, guidelines, ideas, idioms, heuristics, tools, anecdotes, C folklore, and techniques that are often penciled in margins and on backs of papers by those working in the programming trenches - working on many different kinds of projects, over many, many years.

Review: Expert C Programming: Deep C Secrets

User Review  - Michael Bond - Goodreads

Indeed it is a good second book on C. The coverage of pointers and arrays was excellent. I cannot blame the book for being outdated a couple of decades later; I just read quickly through those sections. I would not use the chapter on C++ to actually learn it. Read full review
