C makes it easy to shoot yourself in the foot; C++ makes it harder, but when you do it blows your whole leg off.

Okay, that makes much more sense. Your first post read as if you were starting from scratch with C++ to me. It is true that it is better to pick something and commit to it than to waffle about trying every language under the sun, so even if that one thing you commit to is C++ it's better that you are committing.
I don't want to let you waste time; it's just that I have already started with C++ and then I looked at some forums and people suggested to start with another one.
The problem is that I started learning PHP, then I left it; I started Python, then I left it; same for C#. I thought I should start somewhere and I've found a good C++ book, that is not so cheap and I was already reading it.
