I liked the overall structure of this book, but there are so many mistakes in sample codes and unclear explanations. Looks like still in the stage of manuscript before the final printing. Also forget about 'weekend.' That is totally impossible.

If you want to 'learn' C++ this is not a book for you. The main reasons are: a) It doesn't explain clearly enough important concepts like pointers and OOP. According to the author, one hour is enough to learn either pointers or constructors, and this is not the case. b) there are many, many errors in the book. Not even the first example will compile with the compiler that is provided in the CD-ROM, unless you make modifications. Other examples use wrong variables, have missing braces, and so on. Nevertheless, it could be a quick review if you know already the language.
