    My most favorite c++ book is
    Teach yourself c++ by Herbert Schildt <link>

    The approach is awesome and beginners will surely find it easier to understand the basics of c++ very well. The excercies too helped a lot.
    That book changed my life since that changed my path from windows to linux side.
    Before I used to write crap code in the old turboc c++(3.0) and I didn't even have the slightest clue about standard c++ (lol).
    After coming across that book I installed linux(cd from lib) for the first time so that I can get free standard c++ compiler (didn't have access to net at that time and hence no clue about devcpp).
    I read an article about GUI design in c++ with Qt on linux in a magzine(PCQuest) and that prompted me to try Qt and Qt amazed me in the first gaze itself. And thats how I have been involved with qt and linux since then.

    Other that that book I also found these useful

    What are your favorite C++ books you read - and keep readind from time to time?
    Eugen

    My first @ c++ book is http://www.koders.com/ 2006 the 2° ISBN-10: 3-89842-816-8
    http://www.galileocomputing.de/katal...gp/titelID-899 is ok ....
    I don have much C++ expirience, i have only 10 years expirience on php2,3,4,5 Class Object and 3 years http://gtk.php.net/ is nice to learn Class Object to balance theory and practice, without yawn, and 11 month QT..

    well
    1. The C++ Programming Language - Bjarne Stroustrup
    ( a very good book, has loads of thing but pretty difficult one )

    2. The Complete Reference - C++ - Herb Schildt
    (Explains things pretty simply)

    3. Design Patterns - Eric Gamma et. al
    ( wanna read and re-read this one)

    These are the one that I have and like most....however I intend to read the following ones

    I heard somewhere that Any Book written by Herb Schildt is not so good, including The Complete Reference, C++; I am an intermediate C++ user but have been following this book for a while.
    What do you think ?? May be we should start a bad book topic..

    Hey! I had a PDP-8 class with Walter Savitch way back in the days of the dinosaurs! Glad to see he's moved on to C++.

    I apologize, but I don't understand what this above mean.
    I wondered if it's a good book (take a comparison with "Thinking in c++")....

    I means that I took a class with the author twenty five years ago, when the only C++ was the AT&T cfront compiler. Professor Savitch was teaching assembly for the PDP-8 system.

    Smile Re: What are your favourite C++ books?

    I used 2 books to get into the C++ programming language.
    The first book on C++ was Ivor hortons – C++ tutorial which I found installed with visual studio 6.0, and it was good as entry level book.
    Then I read C++ from the ground up by Herbert schildt and that was a good book.
    After I finished the two books I felt like there is many things still not clear to me like pointers, copy constructors and templates you just can’t cover all C++ in one book!!
    So I kept searching the internet about the things I didn’t understand correctly because it slowed me down when I tried to learn MFC at that time.
    That was very helpful, and I also bought C++ the complete reference because I liked the author style in C++ from the ground up and I learnt the C language from that book.
    Many Things are now clearer to me, I have to admit that learning C helped me a lot to understand C++ better and to put many things into use now.
    So learning the C language is crucial for a C++ programmer IMHO.
    I really recommend those books to:
    Addison Wesley - C++ Common Knowledge Essential Intermediate Programming
    Addison Wesley - C++ Primer, Fourth Edition
    Addison Wesley - Effective C++ 55 Specific Ways To Improve Your Programs Third Edition
    Cambridge University Press - Memory as a Programming Concept in C and C++

    Wthout any order:

    "Code Complete" - Steve McConnell
    Gives very interesting insights into software development in general. Something that I can only recommend everyone to read.

    "Modern C++ Design" - A. Alexandrescu
    Unleashes the C++ Template beast. If you ever wanted to know about policy-based design / generic programming this one is for you.

    "Design Patterns" - GoF
    Enough said about that book already.

    "The Art Of Computer Programming" - Donald E. Knuth
    This is indeed a piece of art. Highly abstract discussions about software. But be aware - no real code (except for Knuth's fictional MIX computer) and it contains quite some math (if you don't want to do maths programming certainly is wrong for you anyway).

    i know C previously........so i choose

    1)PROGRAMMING: PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICE USING C++ --STROUSTRUP(at first i read this and then)
    2)THE C++ PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE --STROUSTRUP (still reading it)

    i also think c++ primer plus is a good book and can be replaced with the (1) option but there is no replacement for (2) one......some will say there can't be any replacement to that monster book but if u know c++ its a treasure........

    I didn't like the C++ GUI Programming With Qt4. Too small of a book and didn't cover enough in details on MVC, QtScript, I don't know if it had QtDBus at time of publishing.

    I love the Foundations of Qt Development. I hope there is a update to the book. That covers alot more modules. the only thing I didn't like was no QtScript, no QtDBus and no covering of the QMeta system unless I over looked that part and QSslSockets.

    Stroustrup's C++ Book is one of my favorites. I think it is a must-read for anyone serious about C++.

    I like that book too. It is like Meyer's "Effective C++", but it has a subtle, dry sense of humor that makes it enjoyable to read.

    I also like Lippman's "Inside the C++ Object Model". Though it is dated now, it is still a good read and it explores C++ from a very deep level. It is probably required reading for a C++ compiler author. After reading that book I really had a better appreciation for everything that is going on under the hood (or bonnet!) to make our jobs easier as C++ application developers. And I'm thankful I'm not a compiler engineer!

    One day I'll get around to read about the template meta-programming, but honestly I have little use for building template libraries myself. Boost and STL do nearly everything I need, and Qt takes care of the GUI aspects...it is a nice time to be a C++ developer. 10 years ago everything was a pain!

    Going from assembler and basic, C++ was a real headspinner. My first book was Stroustrup's C++ Book. For me, a complete waste. I couldn't get into it at all.

    Then I bought C++ in plain english by Brian Overland. This book is basic and uncomplicated, goes directly to the subject matter. I got the picture immediately.

    The next good buy was:

    C++ Master Reference, The Definitive C++ Reference by Clayton Walnum.

    This book is an encyclopedia of classes, all I had to do was look up what I need and implement !
