You bring discipline, commitment, persistence, and experience with any programming language; the author supplies everything else.

Fix your mistakes. Watch the programs run. As you do, you'll learn what good, modern C programs look like; how to think more effectively about code; and how to find and fix mistakes far more efficiently. Most importantly, you'll master rigorous defensive programming techniques, so you can use any language to create software that protects itself from malicious activity and defects.
