    Accelerated C++ will probably be your best bet. It is slightly accelerated, which should be fine for someone with some C knowledge. It also focuses on C++ style and techniques, so that you can use real C++ instead of just C style and techniques with classes. This is also the mostly commonly recommended learning book from C++ experts (it is part of Bjarne Stroustrup's In-Depth series). If you want a reference book instead of a learning book, use Stroustrup's The C++ Programming Language Special Edition.

    If Accelerated C++ looks too hard, try "C++: A Beginner's Guide".

    You can have a look at some book reviews here. If you scroll down to the bottom you will find a relist of all the recommended/highly recommended stuff. Note that a couple of the titles already mentioned are highly recommended at that site. I would mention one more, C++ Primer Fourth edition.
