4.0 out of 5 stars C++ Programming Cookbook, 25 Sept. 2011
This book provides an excellent method and style of teacing the difficult subject of becoming a C++ programmer, learning from no C++ knowledge at all. If you have not been a programmer before it is likely to be too hard going for many people. If you have been a programmer before you should find it works its way through the complex world of C++ in a methodical and systematic way. Most explanations are good and come with relevant worked examples. Coverage is thorough up to intermediate level. If you are serious about learning C++ then at least three books would be advised, in which case I would definitely recommend this book as one of them.

There is one very weak area though, and that is input/output coding for Windows and/or UNIX systems. Anyone would think that C++ programs run happily inside a computer and never need to communicate with the outside world. There is little or no help, for example, on how to print from your program, it is weak on some aspects of keyboard I/O, and there is no help on read/write programs to/from USB or hard disc. Sadly it is difficult finding a book that does this practical aspect of C++ programming well.
