    Would be a good book for senior high school students.

    I agree with other reviewers who have rated it positively.

    I prefer knuth's method of writing something correct and marking it you are not meant to understand this, and i also understand why he called malloc() without checking for a null return all the time (incorrect behavior--never do this).

    Much of the time, this involves the unnecessary throwing of tantrums, exceptions, and chairs; this is unfortunate, and you should try to determine the validity of the complaint even if the person raising it is busy calling you the world's dumbest programmer instead of explaining the problem clearly.

    Putting in the time and effort by skilled methods of learning will quickly develop anyone into a first-class programmer; the question is whether the effort is personally worth it to your interests--while it might be possible, you might instead be much happier studying graphic design and becoming a concept artist, writer, aerospace engineer, or something else.
