I think one of the best books to learn C from is "Learning to Program in
C" by Thomas Plum.  It's not written like these "Learn C in 21 Days" type
of books, but definately not too hard to read either.  However, it has
more of a "scientific approach" (yeah, whatever that means) and will also
tell you lots about how computers work internally (different number
systems, pointer arithmetic, bit-shifting, etc.)

You should be able to get it from Amazon or order it via any bookstore.
