If the OP was really looking for a book, I would sooner recommend Yan's Number Theory for Computing as its level is more appropriate. But I don't think any book is needed here, unless perhaps a text on introductory programming.
Perhaps I am giving the OP too much credit, but he did not say that
he was a novice programmer; only that he was a novice with C.
