    What is a good beginners' C++ book?

    I am new to C++, so I spent 40 dollars on the most impressive Standard C++ book I could find to learn the language; bad choice. I bought Standard C++ Bible. I think it's not meant for beginners.

    Well needless to say, I need a new one. Can any of you recommend a good one for beginners? One that actually has diagrams and flow-chart type things when explaining complex ideas such as pointers and class inheritence*?

    The first book I read on the subject of C++ was C++ Primer by S. Lippman

    he doesn't assume knowledge of C++, but he does assume some programming experience
