This book fully explains the C++ language in an easy to understand format. Some of the explanations are a bit lengthy, but in my opinion it helps the reader remember the syntax (which is the entire purpose of the book). This is one of the only programming books I can honestly say that I enjoyed reading. I would recommend this book to anyone studying programming in college or as a hobby!
