I needed this book for a class on programming, and not like I thought a textbook on C++ would be exciting, but they could have made a few of the applications a little more interesting. It reads like a college textbook. The main problem is that I got the kindle version of it, which only allows me to download it so many times before it doesn't allow it anymore. I wasn't aware of this restriction, and the computer I originally downloaded this to crashed, when I reformatted, I wasn't able to download it again. Needless to say, I won't be downloading any more kindle versions. It's not worth the price reduction.

This was my programming book for programming methodology at FGCU in fort myers florida. This book does a decent job of describing programming as if you where a complete beginner. For me I often skipped portions of it because they where very long and unenjoyable to read. Many times I would reference www.cplusplus.com for references to the language itself. It doesn't describe the try statement and exception handling. I think this book could be improved by creating a few examples of commonly made function such as making a function/method for checking for correct input. Also I would have like a more in depth description of the bisection algorithm. I always find it hard to teach myself and this book did a ok job of preparing me for my course and final exams but, I would rather use the website first before I turn to it.
