A book that teaches C++, documenting even the smallest quirks and exceptions. Which is a **complete** reference on C++ (not misc. APIs, only the language). Is there such a book?

The definitive reference for C++ would be the C++ standard. The final draft of the 1998 edition of the standard is available in several places ( example), but the actual standard needs to be purchased. You can get a copy from your national standards body. For example, for the United States, that would be ANSI. Copies can be usually obtained in both electronic format (PDF) and hard copy. However the version published by Wiley is probably the cheapest dead tree edition.

A complete C++ reference and how to write nice C++ programs are two completely separate topics. (Learning how to program is another topic.) Buy several books. I recommend "The C++ programming language" and "Effective C++".
