I found this book, Practical C++ Programming, to be one of the finest technical books that I have ever had the pleasure of reading. While its intent is to teach you how to program, and it does a wonderful job of this, it makes it interesting, and more than that, fun. By providing critical thinking problems throughout, including practice coding assignments, it doesn't just show you how to code, it makes you understand.
I would gladly recommend this book to anyone I find who is interested in learning C++. The author does a wonderful job of guiding you through the background informaton you need to know, without overloading you with useless or unneccesary information in part 1. The rest of the book shows you not only how to code, but, more importantly, how to code good, easy to read and understand code that can be maintained easily.
Overall, this is a wonderful book.
