Superb, 25 July 2001
I have a collection of C++ books, and none like THIS one. I bought it following the controversy it caused by its new approach to C++. While I believe that it might be ,at first, a bit steep for new learners, I think it is THE books to start with. You will get aquainted with essential skills in C++ (mainly the use of the highly portable STL)and quickly start writing effective, bullet proof programs. I will be buying all the books in the series including Modern C++ design and Strourstrup's manual...
