A book I found quite useful when I was learning C is
Programming In C
by Stephen G. Kochan
published by Hayden
It teaches C in an intersting way, without being too difficult
for beginners, nor too simple-minded for people familiar with
computers.. It has additional sections on working with larger 
programs, common programming mistakes, the UNIX C library,
lint, among others..
