Since early in the ’90s, working C++ programmers have relied on Scott Meyers’s Effective C++ to dramatically improve their skills. But the state-of-the-art has moved forward dramatically since Meyers last updated this book in 1997. (For instance, there’s now STL. Design patterns. Even new functionality being added through TR1 and Boost.) So Meyers has done a top-to-bottom rewrite, identifying the 55 most valuable techniques you need now to be exceptionally effective with C++.
Over half of this edition’s content is new. Templates broadly impact C++ development, and you’ll find them everywhere. There’s extensive coverage of multithreaded systems. There’s an entirely new chapter on resource management. You’ll find substantial new coverage of exceptions. Much is gained, but nothing’s lost: You’ll find the same depth of practical insight that first made Effective C++ a classic all those years ago. Bill Camarda, from the July 2005 Read Only
