I bought this book with the intention of learning up-to-date C++, with little prior knowledge. The exercises in the first chapter are impossible with only the knowledge in the first chapter (knowledgeable programmers who I went to for help told me this). There are also no solutions provided. The authors clearly haven't written this to teach C++ to a beginner. The examples and exercises were the reason I bought it as anyone can read free documentation on the net without exercises so it completely fails for my purposes.
