Disclaimer: I haven't finished reading this book and am only part-way through it, but I've been so impressed with it that I wanted to write a review of it so far (and will update this review after I finish it, which will naturally take a while longer).Overview:Chapter 1 Programming with Visual C++Chapter 2 Data, Variables, and CalculationsChapter 3 Decisions and LoopsChapter 4 Arrays, Strings, and PointersChapter 5 Introducing Structure into Your ProgramsChapter 6 More about Program StructureChapter 7 Defining Your Own Data TypesChapter 8 More on ClassesChapter 9 Class Inheritance and Virtual FunctionsChapter 10 The Standard Template LibraryChapter 11 Windows Programming ConceptsChapter 12 Windows Programming with the Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFC)Chapter 13 Working with Menus and ToolbarsChapter 14 Drawing in a WindowChapter 15 Improving the ViewChapter 16 Working with Dialogs and ControlsChapter 17 Storing and Printing DocumentsChapter 18 Programming for Windows 8I highly recommend this book for those looking to get into programming on Windows using Visual C++ but aren't familiar with the IDE, the MFC, or programming on Windows specifically. This book has been an excellent intro to all of those subjects with clear explanations, diagrams, and tutorials, and the author's approachable writing style makes it a very easy read. And although it covers the C++ language (C++11), I wouldn't say it's the best book for someone learning the language for the first time—would definitely recommend someone start with another book to learn and get comfortable with C++ (like Lippman's C++ Primer), then move on to this book to learn the IDE and Windows programming.
