Once, there was only one way to learn C++: struggle through low-level programming details forever. Eventually, someone would deign to initiate you into the power of the standard library. Those were the dark ages. Today, you can focus on what it takes to be efficient and productive almost from the get-go -- including the library. Of course, you need a book that treats C++ this way. Such as C++ Primer, Fourth Edition.
Like earlier editions, this is a comprehensive C++ tutorial, packed with examples. It'll take you a long way. You’ll design abstract types, build robust object-oriented applications, even master generic programming and namespaces. There are plenty of tips, pitfalls to avoid, learning tools, and (downloadable) sample code. With its new focus on programmer efficiency, it's the very model of a modern C++ tutorial.
