Yes!  I have a copy of that book.  It was rather difficult to find.  I 
ordered it before I was aware of the publisher, and bought it from All 
Electronics.  I've had it for just a few weeks now, and have not sat 
down to begin studying with it.

Oh, and upon receiving the replies from this thread, I ordered a used 
copy of Kernighan and Ritchie's definitive C book.  Reading the 
comments, this seems to be the doctrine that all others are based upon.  
I'm looking forward to adding it to my studies.
