    Insightful text, poor graphics

    The best way to rate Stephen Prata's C++ Primer, Fourth edition, is to compare it to the classic 'C++, How to Program,' Fourth edition, by Deitel & Deitel. I find that there is a place for both on my bookshelf. Although both are books for the beginning to intermediate C++ programmer, there's a big difference in how they cover the material. Prata covers just about the same ground as Deitel & Deitel , but with a more conversational ease and natural flow. Reading Prata is almost like having someone explain a topic to you in person. Prata includes helpful notes, including the idiosyncracies of the popular compilers, that will save you lots of wasted effort, and maybe your sanity as well. Prata writes a book that you can read with ease, confident that he will get to all the important topics. It is all there, and very accessible. C++ Primer Plus, Fourth edition, could have earned a five star rating from this reviewer were it not for numerous typographical errors and exceedingly poor graphics. For example, Figure 13.5 (page 598), which attempts to provide a graphic overview of the important topic of Virtual Function Tables, is made unreadable by the application of a gradient fill which obliterates much of the text. Other diagrams in the book are similarly defaced by amateurish and inappropriate use of gradient fills and excessive borders. This is quite disappointing in a book that has undergone four editions and a second reprint, August 2002, 'with corrections.' Furthermore, there's no CD-ROM packaged with the Fourth edition, although example code is said to available at the publisher's website. In summary, this is an excellent text marred by poor production values (typos and illegible graphics). Never the less, it is exceedingly good at presenting the foundations and advanced topics of C++ in an accessible style. I highly reccommend this book.

    An Excellent Book!

    C++ Primer is an excelently constructed book, I am 13 years old and interested in programming. I had ordered this book and am learning decently. Stephen Prata does an excellent job telling readers alternative way around problems and how to flex through different situations depending on what software or operating system you have, Wich i may add is another positive aspect to this book, its not limited to one specific Compiler, Operating system, Or whatever.<BR/><BR/> I am highley satisfied with this book, and reccomend it to anyone who feels the urge to learn C++. Alot of hard work was put into this book.<BR/>One thing a may add to warn though, is the binding of the book, Try to excersise caution and go easy with the book.

    An incredible book!

    It is staggering just how much work and insight has gone into this book. Whereas others frequently adopt the 'don't worry about why, just type this' approach, Prata explains the how and the why, but it comes across as a conversation - free flowing and easy to read - unlike so many other books on this complex topic. Truly a work of art!
