easy to understand tips
A virtue of Dewhurst's book is its brevity. He's condensed into 63 items guidelines that promise to be useful to many C++ programmers. Naturally, you're expected to already be conversant with the basics. You can write and compile a C++ program. But rather than produce a huge tome, he offers tips that are 3 to 4 pages long. Pragmatic and quick advice. The tips are also random access. You can pick an item and it rarely depends on earlier items. This does mean that there is a slight grab-bag ambience. When you read a typical book on coding, it is often necessarily linear. Dewhurst has a different emphasis. The items are also not that difficult. Deliberately so. Dewhurst avoids the more intricate but relatively rarely used aspects of C++. Nothing on template metaprogramming, for example.
