Excelent book! Strongly recommended (not only for C developers).
The Bulgarian translation is really well done. ( )

Even if you do not have a project that can use these pragmatic suggestions, this is a great way to focus on real-life in-depth programming concepts. reading this should enhance your intuition and improve your skills. ( )

Scott Meyer 55 Logics
  sivasden | Mar 5, 2009 |
It's still too early to see how the C++ story will play out. Can a language keep growing forever without at some point seeing some sort of rebellion from the users and compiler writers who just cannot keep up?

But, right now, we have to deal with C++ as it is, and Scott Meyers remains a fine guide in explaining just what the heck is going on in the language, and how the various pieces fit together.
Many years ago I read the first version of this book; and this 3rd edition is a fine update, doing a good job of explaining a number of the new language features that have been added over the last ten years. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0321334876, Paperback)

“Every C++ professional needs a copy of Effective C++. It is an absolute must-read for anyone thinking of doing serious C++ development. If you’ve never read Effective C++ and you think you know everything about C++, think again.”
Steve Schirripa, Software Engineer, Google
“C++ and the C++ community have grown up in the last fifteen years, and the third edition of Effective C++ reflects this. The clear and precise style of the book is evidence of Scott’s deep insight and distinctive ability to impart knowledge.”
Gerhard Kreuzer, Research and Development Engineer, Siemens AG

The first two editions of Effective C++ were embraced by hundreds of thousands of programmers worldwide. The reason is clear: Scott Meyers’ practical approach to C++ describes the rules of thumb used by the experts — the things they almost always do or almost always avoid doing — to produce clear, correct, efficient code.

The book is organized around 55 specific guidelines, each of which describes a way to write better C++. Each is backed by concrete examples. For this third edition, more than half the content is new, including added chapters on managing resources and using templates. Topics from the second edition have been extensively revised to reflect modern design considerations, including exceptions, design patterns, and multithreading.

Important features of Effective C++ include:

Expert guidance on the design of effective classes, functions, templates, and inheritance hierarchies. Applications of new “TR1” standard library functionality, along with comparisons to existing standard library components. Insights into differences between C++ and other languages (e.g., Java, C#, C) that help developers from those languages assimilate “the C++ way” of doing things.
