From the Back Cover

Sams Teach Yourself C++ in 24 Hours, 2nd Edition is a hands-on guide to the C++ programming language. Readers are provided with numerous examples of syntax and detailed analysis of code, an excellent guide for beginning programmers. In just 24 hours, readers will learn about such fundamentals as managing I/O, loops and arrays, object-oriented programming, templates, and creating C++ applications- all in well-structured and easy-to-follow lessons. Lessons provide sample listings, complete with sample output and an analysis of the code, to illustrate the topics of the day. Sams Teach Yourself C++ in 24 Hours, 2nd Edition has been updated to the new ANSI/ISO C++ Standard and includes coverage of namespaces, the Standard Template Library and distributed computing. This edition is non-compiler specific and has received a double technical edit to ensure code integrity.

If you're getting started in C++, I strongly recommend this book.
Rodrigo A. Castilho
In an attempt to make up for this, a "line-by-line" analysis of the code is offered after each sample listing, but that only spawns more problems.
Brandon Tom
This book is amazing, I even carry it with me to my friend's house, it's not a boring book, it's addictive!

I have read several "teach yourself" books from various companies and have found this to be up there as one of the best. In fact, I felt that it was well above and beyond every other book I have read in the "24 hour" quickstart category.
If a programer is going to be programing in an object oriented language THEY NEED (not should but need) to understand the concepts seperate to any one language. It is not the purpose of this book, nor should it be, to explain OO programming. If this book was to contain "the greater picture within the overall framework of object-oriented programming" it would have to be double the size and would be a "teach youreself in a couple of weeks" book.
PLEASE REMEMBER - this book is ONLY a quickstart guide, not a comprehensive language or object-oriented programming reference manual!!
Anyone with any OO knowledge will find this book to be the clearest and fastest way of learing the basics of the C++ language. Jessy Liberty has shown that he can explain concepts clearly and concisely. This book was a very good begining for me and has allowed me to go on to further reading and programming of Visual C++ and C Builder with confidence.

Format: Paperback
On the bright side, most of what is said in this book does make sense to the amateur computer programmer. I can't offer the view point of someone who is an absolute programming novice, but if I had to take a guess, I'd say this book is definately not for that person. This book expects you to have a least a basic understanding of some fundamental principles of programming, and by extension a few pieces of programming lingo as well, but not very much.
The book doesn't suffer from the "unknown jargon" syndrome so much as it does from the "very-scantly-explained-small-topic" sydrome. By that I mean, there are subject matter scattered throughout the book that isn't necessarily important to know at the moment, but they are so vaguely explained that they distract and confuse the reader, leaving one to ask "what does he mean?" and totally missing point in the meanwhile.
The most frustrating aspect of the book is the code. I've re-written most of the code in the book, and only one hasn't compiled (and even that was sort of an obvious typo). However, that's a long way from saying the quality of the examples given are high.
The most striking thing about the code is that it lacks a lot of in-code comments. Comments would have made the examples more meaningful as the reader was doing them. In an attempt to make up for this, a "line-by-line" analysis of the code is offered after each sample listing, but that only spawns more problems. First, the analysis sometimes says it is refering to line numbers which, clearly, it is not. Sometimes the lines numbers it refers to are blank!

Format: Paperback
I'm not criticizing this book -- well, actually I am, but it's conditional. I think if you are already a programmer, this book will make learning C++ much faster. For me, a totally green beginner, the book was good with some topics and especially confusing with others. I think the problem may be in that the author had to seriously condense some of the introductory material from his other book which is probably more comprehensive and in less of a rush. Some topics are presented crystal clear, while at other times, there is a term introduced and you have no idea what it means but it is used to support a concept that is also not completely explained. The question remains - is it really possible to learn C++ in 24 hours? I think not. And part of the problem, with me anyway, was that as I got further into the book, I became more and more confused and essentially had to purchase a companion text. Again, this book isn't bad in any way, but it is not a self-contained entity as the title would suggest. The title should be: Learn C++ In 24 Hours If You Already Have A Bit of Functional Programming Knowledge.

Format: Paperback
Not if you don't have compiler experience! The book is well organized, the author well known for his teaching abilities. However, the BORLAND TURBO C++ LITE compiler does not work, and will not work because it was put together in 1990 by BORLAND who will not support it, and as a matter of fact (this took me one week) NO ONE supports it. Its just too old. This is not the authors fault. SAMS publishing can't help, they just threw in whatever they found on the shelf. The source code saves much typing, but I find that you need experience in typing in code to find your own personal problems with typing in code, and recognizing what a semi-colon does, and so on. Just copying files and running the compiler won't create a programmer. You need to create your own programs; this creates experience. This book is a beginning. There are many more books by Jesse Liberty that I like better. I'll have a drink and toast all programming authors the day they get their programming books together and put a cd in with a proper compiler, or recommend which one to get., and where to get it. SAMS PUBLISHING owes me one!
