Good Book BUT not for the absolute beginner.,
This review is from: Beginning C++ Through Game Programming (Paperback)
If you have a basic grasp of C++ then this book is perfect and fun.
If you are a complete novice with no prior programming experience then this is not the book for you. Like most "Beginners" books the first chapter or 2 is easy to follow then the pace picks up far too quickly and you get lost.
For the absolute beginner to C++ there is only 2 books to choose, Programming Principles and practise using C++ and C++ A Beginners guide.

Very much agree. 'C++ A Beginner's Guide', I found, was better for the absolute beginner.

you really think Programming Principles and practise using C++ is easier than this book? i was going to buy that book but a lot of reviewers are saying its too difficult for beginners. I dunno which to choose:(

I wish I'd seen your review before I bought this!
TOTALLY agree with you. Like FAR TOO MANY so-called beginners' books it was dead easy for about 2 or 3 chapters, after which it may as well have been written in Martian. It may be a useful book for the future, but for now I'm using and actually understanding C++ A Beginners Guide.
