    Book recomendation needed

    Hi,

    I have been jumping from c to c++ and so far I am managing to do what i want to do , but as I progress, I see that many things (concepts, structural designed), though working perfectly fine, are not in accordance with c++ philosophy , especially when it comes to larger projects. (Then the flaws of my design come to light)

    So, I am asking for an advice on a good (concise and straight to the point) book regarding template and generic programming in c++. Can someone recommend something. Even better would be a short primmer to get me started after which a good book would be of great value to me .

    Thank you !

    I'd say, Acclerated C++ at first.
    After that read books like Effective C++ to pick up good habits.
    Then if you have the time or energy, Modern C++ Design or C++ Templates-The complete Guide.

    Here is a more complete list:
    Good C++ book nowadays?

    Slow and Steady wins the race... if and only if :
    1.None of the other participants are fast and steady.
    2.The fast and unsteady suddenly falls asleep while running !
