Back in the late 1980's I used to sometime spend time at the New England Mobile Book Fair in Newton, Massachusetts. This is essentially a warehouse full of books on shelves. They always have a lot of computer books, many of them used, so the selection is always interesting.
One day when I was there I found a copy of The Small-C Handbook, by James Hendrix (not Jimi Hendrix). I didn't purchase the book that day but I did read through quite a bit of it while I was there. This is a really good book, and I have given copies of it to people who expressed a desire to understand the essentials of programming languages and compilers.
It's not a big book. I wouldn't say it's an easy read, but well worth it.
