5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book 28 Oct 2012
By pawel
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a really great introductory book about C++. It covers all important aspects of the language and shows how it can be used to develop Windows-based applications. It contains a lot of code examples and exercises, which makes C++ even easier to learn. The newest edition focuses on C++ 11, showing the new features of the language and how they can be used in practice. I really recommend this book.
