For beginner C++ books I generally recommend:

C++ Primer by Stanley Lippman and Josee Lajoie
Accelerated C++ by Andrew Koenig and Barbara Moo


Have a look at the ACCU link in my signature for a very good and wide range of book reviews.

I have found the publishers Addison-Wesley very good, but I don't think you should generally make a decision about a book based on the publisher.

[ Google || Start Here || ACCU || MSDN || STL || GameCoding || BarrysWorld || E-Mail Me ]

I know that I should not throw out a book solely on the fact that it is made by a certain publisher but some are better than others such as For Dummies vs. O''Reilly...

There are some good - free - programming books covering a range of languages floating around on the Net, a simple search on Google or visiting a few programming sites should provide you with a few to get you started.
