Hello!
I recently started programming and have got a bit familiar with C++. I am also new to this community but i'm here to stay :P I was wondering if the programmers out there could recommend me decent litterature about programming (C++, engines/libraries, AI etc.). I have decided to spend about 14 months teaching myself programming/game development before attending a game developing school.

And if you have time I wouldn't mind a guideline (like which books I should pick up after learning my computer language).

Thx, will look up the books.

Have a new question tho. Is it essential to read several different c++ books when you finished reading one? Or are there books which covers everything?
