Review by

This is another impressive title from O'Reilly. When I first bought the book, I really wished I hadn't because the book was intended for C programmers (which I was not). At that time I was basically new to C++. Later on, after taking a course in C++ and learning some of it on my own, I really found the book to be insightful.The book revealed a lot of things that my teachers would skip over. I really appreciate that it focused on the things that make C++ what it is. It doesn't pretend to be comprehensive, but it covers a lot more than many so-called "comprehensive" books cover. I really recommend this book for C programmers wishing to move to C++ and also C++ programmers who would like to have a deeper understanding of C++'s rich OO features.
