As a semi-experienced C++ programmer, I found this book utterly useless. The book contains no full working program examples. What code is offered is so out-of-context as to be indecypherable. It makes no effort to get you up and running quickly.Definately of no use to someone who doesn't already know almost everything about C++ in Symbian OS. So, useless to everybody except academics and Symbian employees! If you do buy this anyway, prepare to read the whole book through 3 times, spend a lifetime in the forums and a fortune on coffee and headache pills, before you can approach a semblance of reasonable proficiency.A beginners' book is due to be published in October 2005 by Symbian Press. Till then, stick with Java for mobile development unless your life depends upon it.
If you want to know Symbian from a high level, buy this book.
