Just remember though that Qt doesn't use standard C++ (it requires preprocessing by an external tool like qmake) which is a little tacky and may lead to maintainance issues in years to come. For this reason I suggest wxWidgets (or gtk(mm) if you only intend to target UNIX.)

Since the C++ language is pretty standardised and stable, the dummy books will probably still help but I highly recommend "The C++ Programming Language" by Bjarne Stroustrup. (The dummy series of books might be better for "mid-code reference" however).

As for sound... dunno, I like OpenAL and libogg for playing sounds but it seems like you are planning to do more advanced things than that :)
