I knew Walter Savitch through his Absolute Java book when I took a programming class at university (I have a very basic background in Java). I was really impressed with his style and clear explanation.I decided lately to learn C++ but wasn't sure what book I should choose. Gladly, I came across this book which I borrowed from a friend. I wasn't disappointed at all. It is the best book ever to teach C++ to beginners. It is highly recommended that you have a minimal idea on what programming is, if you don't, you still can use this book as an introductory for C++ and programming in general.I gave this book 5 starts because: 1. the explanation is super clear. 2. it walks you through programming step by step. 3. it anticipate the problems you might face such as (I typed the code exactly as it written in the book but it doesn't work! the answer is you might have an older compiler and to fix this issue you should ....etc) 4. it contains a summary at the end of each chapter 5. it has self-test questions 6. it has programming project exercises 7. the answer to the self-tests are provided at the end of each chapter.As a result, I have purchased my own copy! I highly recommend this book!
I 'absolutely' love this book. It is a great overview of the language and its newest features without spending too much time on the basics.The author was also open to discussion. I was able to email Mock and ask him a question about cpp11 shared pointers I felt was confusing, and he was open to talking about it. Awesome guy.As a C++ dev, I really like it.
