For developing applications Microsoft has developed the Visual Studio integrated development environment which supports the programming of applications in four languages: Visual Basic, C#, J# and of course C++. While Microsoft would prefer that you use their propriatary languages they still support C++ which is arguably somewhat more powerful than the other languages.
This book is a complete and detailed text on programming in C++ using Visual Studio 2005. It is highly oriented to the .NET Framework 2.0. The book is more in reference format than tutorial which makes it easier to find what you are lookin for when you go back to confirm what you've read. It is intended for both experienced and novice C++ programmers, but I don't think that it is suitable for the total beginner to programming. Some work beforehand on a beginning C++ book would be desirable, a lot of the minor details like language structure are not explained at the absolute beginner level.
The book has two rough edges: (a) occasional proofreading mistakes (sometimes amounting to fairly serious errors of fact, more often just typos), and (b) continuous "moose and squirrel" grammar that omits definite article. ( [...]) ) With those caveats, I'd recommend it for the same purpose I used it.
