That's awesome! I hadn't come across Donald Alcock's books before, and I'm glad you recommended them. I've just ordered a copy of Illustrating C. Looking forward to being inspired by it!

I liked the form of Alcock's books. I am not competent to comment on the quality of his instructions for learning a language like C (although I did finally work out pointers) as I am not a professional programmer. I did use his BASIC book with students.

I think you should do a review of Alcock's C book when you have read it.
