But IMO a C programmer of any level doesn't necessarily need to have extensive knowledge of OOP.


Probably it's true only for driver makers. All ideology structure for software will be written on an OOP language(like lots of games).

If all you really want is OOP you should consider C#/Java/C++ not C. While C can be used for OOP, it takes a lot of work. But don't be concerned there is still a lot that can be done with C, you mentioned drivers, don't forget that most of today's operating systems are primarily C, and many of your games have quite a few areas that are probably written in C.

Now since this is a C book recommendation topic, we should probably get back on topic.

If you use C for embedded programming like I do for microcontrollers (Microchip PICs, ST microcontrollers), I would suggest: Embedded Software, Second Edition: The Works by Colin Walls.
This is more for people who are more advanced and are more intimate with electronics.

The prescribed text for my course at Melbourne University is by one of the professors, and it's surprisingly well written. It's really easy to read, and most of what it says is pretty much spot on! It's called "Programming, Problem Solving and Abstraction with C" by Alistair Morgan.
