Solving with C++ became the leading book for the CS1 in C++ course. Since then, the number of schools using the book has increased every semester. Now, Professor Savitch is revising the book to include the most current C++ developments and to make it an even more effective teaching tool for you.
New to the Second Edition
Integrates recent C++ developments like the new type bool for writing logical expressions.
Features a new chapter on inheritance.
Includes coverage of the Standard Template Library string class.
Contains new self-test exercises and programming projects as well as other improvements based on classroom experience.
Based on the idea that readers are more likely to use a method successfully if they learn it early, this introductory C++ programming book opens with basic control structures and defining functions. The book has a motivational writing style and careful explanations that guide readers through each topic, building an understanding of C++ and good programming techniques.
Walter Savitch is Professor Emeritus of Computer Science at the University of California—San Diego. He received his PhD in mathematics from the University of California—Berkeley in 1969.

He has served as a visiting researcher at the computer science departments of the University of Washington in Seattle and at the University of Colorado in Boulder, and has been a visiting scholar at the Centrum voor Wiskunde en Informatica in Amsterdam.
I think the title says all. If you want a supplementary book, this one is good. However, we all know that the ANSI/ISO C++ has been finalized and people wishing to learn the Standard C++ should get a book teaching you the ANSI/ISO C++.
