The Barnes & Noble Review
Now in its Fifth Edition, Sams Teach Yourself C++ in 21 Days is a truly superb tutorial for anyone who’s new to C++: flat-out novices, programmers migrating from C, and those moving from other languages.

Lead author Jesse Liberty has a reputation for excellence in training programmers. (That excellence is grounded in real-world experience: He rose to the positions of distinguished software engineer at AT&T and vice president of technical development at Citibank.) Coauthor Bradley Jones, likewise no slouch, manages three of the world’s leading developer sites, including CodeGuru.com. Together, they’ve systematically updated this book -- making it a remarkably simple and well-organized route to C++ mastery.

Today’s C++ programmers work very differently from their predecessors. Liberty and Jones have revamped this book to reflect contemporary C++ development at its best -- including ANSI/ISO Standard C++, the Standard Template Library, and namespaces.

Your 21 lessons begin with an explanation of the C++ development cycle and the anatomy of a typical C++ program. You’ll master basic syntax (variables, constants, expressions, statements, functions, program flow). Next, the authors turn to objects and classes, pointers, references, and other C++-specific techniques likely to be unfamiliar to those moving from other languages.

By now, you’ll be ready for a deeper understanding of object development -- including analysis, design, inheritance, and polymorphism. In Week 3, you’ll move to downright advanced techniques (for instance, templates and stream-based I/O).

There are plenty of examples, annotated with easy-to-understand discussions and actual sample output. Plus: a handy quiz at the end of every chapter. Sure, you don’t get a “live” instructor. But this C++ course has gone through more refinement than anything you’re likely to find at your neighborhood training emporium. Bill Camarda, from the March 2005 Read Only

Bradley Jones, Microsoft MVP, Visual C++, can be referred to as a webmaster, manager, coding grunt, executive editor, and various other things. His time and focus are on a number of software development sites and channels, including Developer, CodeGuru, DevX, VBForums, Gamelan, and other Jupitermedia-owned sites. This influence expands over sites delivering content to over 2.5 million unique developers a month.

His expertise is in the area of the big "C"s—C, C++, and C#—however, his experience includes development in PowerBuilder, VB, some Java, ASP, COBOL I/II, and various other technologies too old to even mention now. He has also been a consultant, analyst, project lead, associate publisher for major technical publishers, and author. His recent authoring credits include Sams Teach Yourself the C# Language in 21 Days, a 6th edition of Sams Teach Yourself C in 21 Days, and now this edition of Sams Teach Yourself C++ in 21 Days. He is also the cofounder and president of the Indianapolis .NET Developers Association, which is a charter INETA group with membership of over 700.

C++ is a mother for many others programming language in the world. So learning how this mother language does her job can give every one strong understanding about how her children do their job too.And this book has given me that.Thank you

Having been a C developer (long ago),this was the best book I've found to ramp back up to C++ in short order. Explains details well and includes nice things like discussions on how data is stored in memory.
