From the Back Cover

The ANSI/ISO C++ Professional Programmers Handbook is a concise professional C++ reference tool that presents all of the changes and addenda to the language specification. It contains tips and guidelines for exerting the full potential of C++ as a multi-purpose object-oriented programming language. The new Standard Briefing component provides coverage of the latest version of the C++ language including additions and modifications to the language, new constructs such as built-in bool type, namespaces, RTTI, new header file conventions, internalization, memory management and new cast notation. Additionally, we've included a Manual of Programming Style, a Compatibility Compendium, and Future Directions overview.

Format: Paperback
The ANSI/ISO C++ Professional Programmer's Handbook is a highly readable alternative to the standard C++ text (The C++ Programming Language, Stroustrup, AW). This book is shorter and sharper than Stroustrup and has better focus. It's able to achieve this because it assumes a working knowledge of the C++ language and is focused around the standard. It's well written and provides a valuable reference for C++ terms. It also contains practical advice on language usage, memory management, programming style, optimization.

Highly Recommended.

This is definately a 5-star book. Before finding this book, I'd looked high and low for a real *advanced* C++ book. Most C++ books are not worth the price for someone who's already an expert in C++. This book covers everything--all the details and nuances of RTTI, templates, namespaces--not just what can be done with the language, but the how and why. Even a seasoned C++ guru will be able to learn a thing or two from Kalev. But the book's format is easy an accessible, even for an intermediate user. Overall, it's great! I can't recommend this one enough!

This is a book meant for programmers who are already comfortable with the basic language features and would like to enhance their repertoire without having to toil away at a 1000+ page tome. The content of the book can be best described as a collection of tutorials on the more esoteric language features presented in an easy to assimilate manner.

Most of the individual tutorials can be found at [...] .

A comprehensive and in-depth treatment of ANSI C++ concepts, constructs, and features. Kalev is readable, competent, and detailed with plenty of practical, easy examples. I would recommend this book to anyone with prior knowledge of C++ who would like to learn the new and improved C++.

As the author in the preface says, this book is for experienced C++ programmers that want to learn about the newer language features that were added later in the ANSI/ISO process. There are also chapters that cover non ANSI related topics like Section II which covers OO Design and Programming topics (which are a minimal interest to experienced C++ programmers) and Section V which covers memory management and optimization techniques.
Some of the new ANSI features, like namespaces and the dropping of the of the .h from #includes, were not covered in enough detail to give the reader a precise understanding. This is very disappointing. Maybe the author should have concentrated more on the ANSI chapters and less on the non ANSI chapters.
The book contains a chapter on the new Standard Template Library. The chapter gives a good overview of the STL. Readers wanting a more compete understanding of the STL will need to find a book devoted solely to this topic... the author also includes a chapter on how to optimize C++ code.

This book is great for intermediate/advanced C++ programmers. Very readable and informative. I'd recommend it even if your compiler of choice is not terribly standard compliant, i.e. Visual C++. You'll learn more about the standard and refresh your memory on some things about C++ you've forgotten.
