That is actually the book I learned on. I think it is very good and I would highly recommend it. I still use it to this day as a reference.

The book itself might be very useful for beginners who want to enter game programming. As a book for learning C++ itself, its definitely not going to be very good.

peorge, if you're looking for a book that teaches you C++ well, don't rely on game programming or "in 21 Days" type of books. I tend to recommend "Accelerated C++" by Koenig and "C++ Primer" by Lippman. A number of experienced C++ programmers should second those recommendations, but others may have other preferred books.
