From the Back Cover:

e entire book; or, to get a jump start, you can scan the book for only the critical changes marked by bars in the margin. Armed with this list, you'll be prepared for all the important ANSI changes, from the critical to the truly nitpicky. You'll be alert to "quiet changes" your compiler can't warn you about, but that can make your code go radically awry. And you'll be aware of changes in syntax, which might require you to change your code to compile it under ANSI C.

The book covers both the language itself, including the preprocessor, and the library routines that provide runtime support. Throughout the book, wherever relevant, techniques are included for making your code compile with both pre-ANSI and ANSI compilers to accommodate systems which are not ANSI compliant.What's more, the whole subject is covered in a light, humorous tone and organized for ease of use, grouped in logical order. Readable as a book, concise as a reference, this guide will quickly get you on to doing things with the language instead of worrying about it.You return to your hometown after 10 years, finding that while many things look familiar, there are changes. You might run a stop sign that wasn't there before. Your hometown has changed and so has your C. Let Ken and John give you the tour so you don't break an axle in one of the language's new potholes.
