Im a new guy to this programming stuff and im willing to start off small but i find it really hard to get a good book that teaches C++ well for someone like me. I was just wondering if anyone could tell me a book they like that goes into depth for beginners like myself. Or if you can give me some good information please send it to Mjsaffran@msn.com I am like you...I have no name.

I liked the C++ Black Book by Holzner when I was starting out.

I used Teach Yourself C++ in 21 Days.



I know only that which I know, but I do not know what I know.

Read trough what you already know, cause you will learn all you thought you knew.

C++ Primer (Lippman) is very good.

21 days sucks. No, really. It sucks. Class cat? Member function meaow? Please.

Black book is alright.

The best C++ books I''ve read are "Essential C++" (Lippman) and "Accelerated C++" (Koenig and Moo). These come with the recommendation of Strostroup, who "invented" C++. They teach not only the language syntax but also good programming style.
