I do like the authors style, he presents things concisely and clearly.
Gary Mccormack
In my point of view, this book is one if not the best book I have ever read so far in C++.
Jonathan Espejo
I'd recommend this book to anyone who needs to understand C++ and how it pertains to OOP.

If you wish to learn C++ without being held back by discussions of why loops are important or when to use an "if" statement, and you have compiled programs before, then Josuttis' is the C++ book to read first. It is not a 1000 page tome with tiny type. It is easy to understand and a good place to start learning all of C++. The talented elite will not be bored and can quickly progress. The below average will not be left mystified or bewildered by the book. And half of us are below average, aren't we?
It is short, balanced, correct, and technical. You finish the book actually knowing what is object-oriented programming. That is such an old-fashion virtue, a book that is what the title says.
"Question: How do you know which management techniques work best? Logically, doesn't the existence of thousands of management books show that no one knows what works best?" Boss answers, "The trick is knowing which one to read." Dilbert says, "Now you're just making me Mad." - Dilbert, May 17, 2003. Like management books, some C++ books are safer choices than others are.
I successfully learned C++ from the Josuttis book. But I have a list of books that broke my heart, each good but not the correct first book for me (and maybe not for you). The three categories of books and their faults: Short books for the gifted, elite or experienced like "Accelerated C++" by Koenig & Moo, "Essential C++" by Lippmann, "C++ FAQs" by Cline, Lomow & Girou, "Thinking in C++" by Eckel. These are too unique, peculiar, or idiosyncratic. The 400,000 word beginner books like "C++ Primer Plus" by Prata, "C++ How to Program" by Deitel & Deitel. Long, boring & slow.

In my point of view, this book is one if not the best book I have ever read so far in C++. The author knew exactly what the reader needs to know and presented them in a clear and concise manner. It has very well written & easy to read C++ code samples. For a beginner to intermediate in C++, I think this book is for you as it walks you through a step by step approach to learning C++. The knowledge you would learn at the end of reading will make you feel better and comfortable in using C++. There are books out there that I've found boring if not too advanced at my level, I wish this influence you not to put yourself into that experience.
Thanks Nicolai for putting this together, a wonderful book that will surely help many people that are interested to learn C++.

Format: Paperback
I am an engineer (not a computer scientist), and my primary computer language is Visual Basic. I have written a good amount of code and I appreciate VB technology very much. (The fact is that this technology works good and cheap enough in wide scope of practical needs).
I wanted to extend my knowledge in computer programming languages and I began to study C++ computer language. At some point I discovered about the existence of the Standard C++ and I understood that, in my case, the right approach must be studying exactly the Standard C++. Finally I did find my personnel "Entry Point" within Nicolai's very nice book! While I often refer to other books as well, I do use the "Object Oriented Programming in C++" as main base point.
The Author demonstrated:
1. Deep understanding of the subject.
2. Strong defending of the idea of the Standard C++.
3. Carefully marking the commons and differences between C++ and C programming languages.
4. Great attention to the detail.
5. Clear explanations of the definitions.
6. Perfect cross references.
7. Generous sharing with the reader.
8. Excellent style!
Thanks a lot for the excellent job!
The Publisher did a good job as well. The book is easy to read and follow. Thanks!

I really enjoyed this book, the material was extremely well presented. It covers a lot more than the basics. I do like the authors style, he presents things concisely and clearly. C++ is a great computer language, and I think anyone trying to master C++ would have a great start by buying this book.
I have the other books by this author on templates and STL, they are superb too!!! thanks

I'd recommend this book to anyone who needs to understand C++ and how it pertains to OOP. Most college courses on C++ end with a brief introduction to OOP at the end. This book not only helps you understand OOP, but it has a good introduction to templates.
I would not recommend this book to someone who has zero C++ experience. Also, this book isn't going to teach you good programming techniques, etc.
Nicolai is a good author and knows C++ in and out. He has the ability to take something as complex as C++ and make it accessible to all.

Format: Paperback
This is a quite good book for professional programmers who are new to c++. Especially for designers and architects. In other words, without the knowledge described in this book, you can never design professional quality software written in C++. Also good for those who want to graduate from 'C++ as better C'.
