    Its ok to start with but you do know that it is available as a FREE e-book somewhere. The link has been posted several times on these boards so a search should throw it up. If you have money to spend on a book to learn c++ from then for starting I personally would get C++ How to program by Deitel and Deitel. This gives a reasonable overview of most of the languages features. When you have worked through that then a much more in depth text would be The c++ programming language by Bjarne Stroustrup.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :- http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/smartfaq.cgi
