'[PIC]: Beginner's PIC C Book Recommendations?'

Hello James,

Best book for beginner on C: "A Book on C" Kelley/Pohl.

It addresses C in general, but you need to get through that before getting
to the specifics of use on an 8 bit micro. C was originally designed to
write operating systems, so by its nature it gets close to the hardware.

The beauty of C is portability.  If you learn C on any machine, you've
learned it on a microcontroller, for the most part.

I started with "Power C", which is a book, tutorial and DOS C compiler
rolled into one.  You get the complete treatment, including "Hello Cruel
World" on your computer screen, without fooling around with the hassles of
burning a PIC or talking to a complicated LCD screen on your first PIC
application.   Just sit down at a DOS prompt and write some code, see it run
(or crash).

Then I bought a copy of CCS C for the PIC, (or get Hitech's Lite package for
free)  and started blinking LED's in a real PIC.  Once I got my LED blinky
merit badge, the rest was pretty easy.   Now they'll only pry my C compiler
from my cold dead fingers.

Get Power C from:
 http://www.mixsoftware.com/product/powerc.htm     $19.95   - worth it just
for the compiler.  No it's not a "Lite version" or a student version or
anything, it is a complete DOS C compiler and inch-thick From the Beginning
tutorial for 20 measly smackers!  I still use the book as a reference, even
in the microcontroller world.
