This excellent book, go right into programming, giving you an appropriate examples. It is defenitely recomended for anyone, especially for beginners who want to be able writing programs from very beggining. Authors teach us C++ by presenting programming problems to be solved used the library right from the start, concentrated on writing useful programs. Explainations of the C++ features are in willing to support the programs, rather than using them as an excuse to demonstrate the features. This book is a nice approach to the new methods of explaining programming language and it is really way to ACCELERATE of learning C++ (without frustration how to write my first program). Once again... warmly recomended.
