I have O'Reilly's Practical C Programming by Steve Oualline and think
it's pretty good for beginners. He glazes over a lot of stuff in the
beginning, but I think that ends up helping in the long run. (Kinda
like, "this is how it works" followed later by "okay, this is how it
*really* works.") Coupled with the K&R book (especially the standard
library reference appendix!), I'm now learning C at a phenomenal rate.
