I am trying to get a better grasp of C++. I've written a few very small apps in C++ (school assignments) but I am in an interesting position. I have experience programming and I've created a few client/server apps in C# (visualization app) but when I want to learn something new.. I usually buy a book (Accelerated C++) and I get bored in the first 4-5 chapters and I can never finish it.
I need a book that is more targeted towards advanced users maybe? But I don't know of one. I need something that's like ok, this does this and this does this and just gives me everything real quick and dirty. I need more advanced topics introduced to me.
Essentially the problem is I don't know where to start because learning about variables, loops, string literals etc. bore me because I've read about them so many times.
