    Help choosing a C++ Book?

    Started to learn a bit about C++, however, I am not very comfortable learning from watching online videos all the time and prefer a solid book to learn from as I find the videos online can be limited. Im wondering if anyone can suggest or recommend a C++ Learning book for beginners of programming in order for me to get the best out of it. I want to learn C++ and hopefully see some career prospects from it. I heard that the book Accelerated C++ is great for beginners and also C++ Learn to Program but I dont want to jump in and spend money if its not what I was after. So here I am cprogramming.com help me out

    I do not think Accelerated C++ is great for beginners with zero programming knowledge and no teacher. If you have already started compiling and running your first C++ programs by following online videos, then Accelerated C++ should be fine; you won't be at a loss as to how to get started.
