You'll want another book to teach you about the semantics of the language - but that is likely to be stuff you'll learn and remember (certainly if you want a job using C++). What you won't remember is the hundreds of library classes, and their functions. This book covers them well.
The C++ language is evolving, and whilst it doesn't go into detail with the basics it does cover the changes that are happening to the language with C++ 11. Some of these being quite significant (Smart Pointers, limited Garbage Collection, Lambdas, Range based for loops...).
Sadly most compilers don't follow the complete C++ 11 standard yet. Takes a long time for compilers to implement the standards. So google around to see what features your chosen compiler supports.
Don't be put off by the fact that this book was published in 1999 and is still in its 1st edition as each reprint of the book contains corrections - you only need to go to Josuttis' website to see errata listed for "the 14th and later printings". I have the 4th printing and the errata is huge - maybe it's time to buy a new copy. :o)
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who uses STL / Standard Library on a regular basis.
