It is not bad. It could be better and go into more depth I feel. If you are curious, here are some things I found.

I know what you are saying, most of these are in Japanese. But the code is not. And rather easy to look at the code and see what they are doing. Anyhow, live dangerous I say. Not many books in English explain this stuff it seems. However, if anyone has nice C related info in any language, I would be appreciative.

"It's only in Japanese". You realize your language is crazy-hard? I wish you had no kanji, it would make my life easier. nihongo ga muzukashi desu...
