It contains basically every function in the standard library and also gives an overview of the basic language features.
Although it does give an overview of the basic programming elements of C++ it probably would not be suitable for a beginner or someone simply trying to learn C++.
As a reference i highly recommend it.
I do not recommend this book for beginners, as those completely new to either programming, or even just C++ may not understand a good portion of the context.
The internet may provide many answers to your C++ related queries, but this book is EASILY more valuable a resource.
