sig. Books on C++ for beginners
I really hate this kind of questions. The "what is the best" kind :mad:
But to be honest I'm confused as hell on what book should I really buy to help me learn C++. Here, at cprogramming, there is an extensive list. But apart from the general agreement around Bjarne Stroustrup's "The C++ Programming Language", the fact is all other books don't share this consensus.
For instance, while checking reader opinions at amazon.com for "C++ Primer", I've read someone who bashed the book for its errors. Now, I really dislike errors in programming books. I feel my money went down the drain. But to have it being praised by others.... well, I'm confused.
I beg of you not to make this thread a what is da best book type of thread. But rather, in your opinion, what book I should get my hands dirty on.
Don't bother mentioning Bjarne Stroustrup's. That one I will buy ;) Also Herbert Schildt's C/C++ Programmer's Reference from Osborne. That one I already have :D
As a small note. It would really help if authoritatively sources would put their efforst reviewing those books at cprogramming.com. It would be nice to have some of the folks around here like Salem, for instance, and I'm sure many others, sharing a few words about those books. Just a side note to help improve an already excellent website (hmm... I think I should emails this to the webmaster)
err... was this a bad question?
That's fine. But please say so :)
