Books, Books, Books (on C++)

with 5 comments

I already said it once in another post but I think it deserves to be mentioned again: Don’t underestimate the usefulness of good books about C++! Prefer buying a good book over searching the internet for tutorials, examples, explanations if you want to learn the language and/or learn about useful idioms, guidelines, etc…

I recently added two other books to my personal library: “Effective C++” and “C++ Coding Standards”. It took me only 3 weeks to finish both books. That means they were interesting and insightful. 🙂

Now, it’s these four C++ books that are in my posession:

  • The C++ Programming Language (Special Edition) by Bjarne Stroustrup
  • Modern C++ Design by Andrei Alexandrescu
  • Effective C++ (Third Edition) by Scott Meyers
  • C++ Coding Standards by Herb Sutter & Andrei Alexandrescu

I wouldn’t mention them here if I didn’t like them. 🙂
