A great Reference Book

I find this a good place to start when I want to build routines. I have had no problems with their code and find it easy to modify when I need to.

seminal but a little outdated

This book deserves the accolades it has received over the years from programmers of all skill and proficiency levels. It truly is concise, where not a single word is wasted in the exposition of any topic.

However, despite its refined terseness, K&R needs to be updated. Exactly how many years old is this book? Too many in my opinion. In order for it to be STILL regarded as the "bible" of C programming, it needs to incorporate both ANSI addenda (ie, C94 and C99).

Great book! False advertisement, but still excellent

The 3D articles as well as the code that goes with them can be found on the web sites listed in the front of the book! So you can download those articles that were damaged on the cd!

A first-rate guide to working with SQL Queries

I like this book! It reads well, and has something to offer to just about every SQL developer, and even (especially?!?) to those people I would class as 'power users'. Its taken a while to bring together and examining different chapters over many months has been 'interesting', it is good to see it finally all together.
