I saw this book on the shelf just when I figured I'd known all there is to know about Object Orientated Programming from "C++ for Dummies".
After a section you get a program exampling the stuff you just learnt. Fine. But then there's this long blow by blow of the code that you just have to skip. It's done even for snippets. This'll have you flippin' pages and wondering what the heck you paid for. If you don't understand the code you aren't ready for this book. Well, the book says you gotta have read "C++ for Dummies". Which'll have you back at the bookstore for "More C++ for Dummies" cause alot stuff in this book isn't covered in "C++ for Dummies". See how money is made?
My advice: Stay away from the 'for dummies' books. They're long, boring repetitive and shy away from a deeper technical understanding of the reading in fear of the reader shelving it and considering themselves a dummy.
Anyone interested in C++ certaintly doesn't want this baby food approach. You can learn all and more free from countless online tutorials. Hey, anything you wanna know can be learned on the net. But if you have to snuggle with a book, the Oreilly collection is superb.
