There are very few technical books that I have read more than once. I can count on one hand the number that I have read three times. Scott Meyers' Effective C++ is one that I have not only read more than once, but have bought three separate editions and read them all more than once. This latest edition is not just a minor updating of previous editions. It contains far more information than earlier editions, and even goes beyond what libraries provided with common compilers currently deliver, making use of the tr1 (Technical Report 1) stuff that will be the future. That's not to say it cannot be used right now - learn from Meyers and use the Boost library (downloadable free) until tr1 becomes commonly available.

In my opinion this third edition is no longer suitable for people new to C++, but once developers have some C++ experience under their belt this becomes a must have. That's not just because most interviewers get their technical questions from Meyers' books (they really do!), but because the content is genuinely useful.

I am working in C++ since last couple of years and I purchased this book few months back. I found this book very useful as it contains most of the do's and don'ts in C++. This book does not waste any time in making you the basics understand it just directly hits the target by talking about how you can make your program more efficient. So a prior good knowledge of C++ is must for this book.
I recommend that this book is for every C++ programmer as it will tell you the things that you should not be doing and explains why also so it does not leaves you wondering why I should not be doing this way. On top of all this book is written in a very simple way so its very easy to understand.

If your programming in C++ then you need to read this book.
You need it for the guidelines it provides for every day work. There are specific practical examples you can apply immediately to the software you write and review, as well as more general theoretical ideas to make you pause and think.
You also need it for your next interview! Many, many corporations use this book as a source of questions, so read this book before your meet your next potential employer.

Should really be called "55 specific ways to make your programs more complicated". Interesting read but much of it I disagreed with. Still glad I read it though.
