I have a couple of books on C. My go to book is The C Programming Language 2nd Edition by Brian W. Kernighan (Author), Dennis M. Ritchie (Author). It is arguably the best book on c. Written by the developers of the language in 1978 and updated in in 1988 (2nd edition), this book is an easy read, covers the essentials and still holds up 39 years later. It is not for a beginner and mostly covers the language, not the compilers and assumes you have the head for programming.
Does C++ have such a book? I mean, a book that is your go to?
