For a couple of weeks ago I bought C Primer Plus Fifth Edition. It looked like a good book when I read about on Amazon, but it wasn't... I have never ever in my life reading in a so boring book. After about 150 pages the only thing I have learned was how to declare a variable and print it on the screen. I'm searching for a thinner, funnner and more hands on C book. I have programming experience from PHP. So I don't want a book which takes 150 pages to learn out how to use printf() and scanf(). Any tips?
