A Good Reference Book - - Not a Complete Textbook
I found this little book to be an excellent reference for the CCS C language. A lot more concise and better written than the CCs manuals. Each instruction and concept is illustrated with a program snippet. But, if you are looking for a programming textbook, you will be disappointed. This volume lacks complete, full-length programs. If the author would add a few more chapters to the next edition, giving some longer programs and a few case studies, then I would give it 5 stars.

More Learning C then Learning about programming PIC
The title of the book is misleading. I was expecting to learn about programming the PIC using CCS C but 8 of the 9 chapters dealt with learning C and had nothing to do with the PIC. The one chapter the did deal with the PIC was short and did not give a lot of information or examples. To me, this book is not worth the money. But if you're looking for a beginners guide to C with a brief description of some of the commands used to program the PIC using CCS compiler, then it may be worth a look.

A fairly straight forward book for the beginner. Takes some of the mystery out of using the CCS functions. If you are interested in doing some basic programming and learning some C and are new to PICs then I would suggest it. Probably not for the intermediate or advanced user. For the price, not a waste of money.
