5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Throughout., 11 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The C++ Programming Language (Paperback)
I found even as an experienced developer, and C++ user, whenever a new language standard definition is released it takes a long time to bring ones way of thinking around to leverage the new language features to their best effect. That is until with C++11 and reading this tome, every little detail of the language is covered, allowing one to convert from old styles and patterns to new technology and new ways of thinking easily.

Turning every other page one could find someone new to learn, for the seasoned of beginner, so long as you know how to use a C++ compiler going through this tome and some of it's examples is a real insight into not just how the language now stands, but how it has evolved.

Coming straight from Bjarne too one finds reading the text almost akin to talking to him in person, he explains so clearly and concisely what he is aiming to do, never over stepping the bounds of the current chapter of section, but always referring you onto other topics.

If you're an absolute beginner, or have never programmed in C++ before, this book is perhaps not for you, check out "A Tour of C++" which is a much more accessible companion to this book and also by Bjarne. Once you're happy with the Tour, then it is time for this, the main event, book to enter your development career.

Excellent throughout.
