Absolutely. I'm horrified at the number of 600, 700, 800, or more page
programming books out there. Most of them are just bloated.
I learned C from the original K&R. The book was about a 1/2 inch thick.
Probably no more than about 150 pages. It didn't try to be all things to all
people, it just tried to teach you C. And it did a very good job.
