    Not read that particular book, but generally Schildt is a very readable author that I like. Others hate him, such is life.

    The "contents" are wrong though, the listing is for a www programming book, the book says it is a C++ book.
    Wave upon wave of demented avengers march cheerfully out of obscurity unto the dream.

    yeah, i noticed the contents

    anyway I decided on 'Learn To Program With C++' by John smiley

    I would suggest C++ Primer Plus by Stephen Prata, excellent book with good exercises.

    Schildt books tend to be rubbish. If you want an introductory text to the language one of the best books is Accelerated c++ by Koenig and Moo.
    We have discussed books many times a search will throw up many reviews.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :-
