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