I have a book called; C++ - How to program (3rd ed) by Deitel & Deitel........

I think its an excellent book and it helped me loads......nice examples, well explained, and it has a nice systematic progression through subjects.......

Before that I read Teach yourself C++ in 21 Days and personally, IMHO, now I think that book was crap.......Deitel stomps over it for amount of information and how the info is laid out......the examples are nice too..........

Try this one..

Thinking in C++, Second Edition, Volume I
by Bruce Eckel
ISBN: 81-7808-297-7, 814 Pages with CD.

You will find it easy to read and of course all necessary things to be touched.
If you have already checked other authors in the market, I'm sure you will see something special..

Stroustrup's The C++ Programming Language
is good also.

But is a reference book, wonderful for the expert.

I would have to agree with zahid.......

Stroustrup is a wonderful book, but I wouldnt wish it on a new starter

Me neither. Herbert Schildts "C++ from the ground up" is quite good as well.
