This book is a good solid introduction to modern C++. It covers a lot of language features and it does so in the right way, i.e. it does not teach you C++ through C as many other books do, but rather introduce the reader directly to modern C++ which is mostly free from its C heritage. The overall structure of the book is quite logical, explanations are thorough and clear, examples are right up to the point.

However, few things should be noted. First, the book is only for those who does have some prior programming experience: it would not teach you programming, it would teach you mostly the language. Secondly, while the book covers a lot of C++11 features I would not recommend it to anyone who is already familiar with C++ and would like just to learn new C++11 features. The reason is that C++11 features are smeared all over the book and explanations while clear are usually also too wordy. ( )

C++ Primer was unique for me in that it is one of the few books on programming languages that doesn’t try to teach the basics of programming (sequence, condition, iteration). Nor does it try to teach object-oriented design or programming. It teaches the language in the context of those ideas. Which somewhat explains my initial fumbled C++ code. ( )
