5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Primer for the main Tome
This neat and cheap book is an excellent primer for the highly detailed tome "The C++ Programming Language (4th Edition)" (TCPL) which Bjarne Stroustrup brings us as well as this book.

The style of this book is very much instructive, with practical examples and many references to deeper understanding material if one chooses to follow it all...

This review is from: A Tour of C++ (C++ In-Depth) (Paperback)
This neat and cheap book is an excellent primer for the highly detailed tome "The C++ Programming Language (4th Edition)" (TCPL) which Bjarne Stroustrup brings us as well as this book.

The style of this book is very much instructive, with practical examples and many references to deeper understanding material if one chooses to follow it all.

This book is not for an absolute beginner in programming, however, anyone with a grounding in programming whom wishes to learn C++ should add this book to their shelves and digest it. If you enjoy this then certainly the main TCPL edition will be right up your street.

Stroustrup also, as always, makes the read simple elegant and informative, his style is hard to beat in such technical fields, clear and concise he is able to make you see the way he wants you to see the information being presented, and it always seems so friendly, he's introducing you gently rather then educating by force.

All in all, a good primer for the larger book, and as ever its in the best style.

This review is from: A Tour of C++ (C++ In-Depth) (Paperback)
This is a great supplement to TC++PL4, it expands nicely on the tour in that book, providing just enough detail on language and technique. It has definitely helped my transition to C++11.

A very nice feature of the book is that it includes a summary with references to the parts of TC++PL4 from each chapter, making it very easy to expand on it's coverage where this is required or desired.
