5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, 28 Oct 2012
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.

Game Coding Complete is a very well written book about designing and programming game engines. It does a really great job at explaining all important aspects of modern game development. The fourth edition deals with DirectX 11 library, which is nicely explained and shown how it can be implemented to a working project. Besides the expected parts of any engine, such as a game loop, input handler, render subroutines etc., it also covers implementation of scripting languages and even how to create own game-related tools.

The book is targeted at advanced users (a good knowledge of C++ is advised).
