Yet another classic from Meyers,
This review is from: More Effective C++: 35 New Ways to Improve Your Programs and Designs (Paperback)
Just as well written as the original Effective C++, More Effective C++ contains a fine collection of C++ techniques. It is quite a bit more advanced than the original so it will be most useful to software architectures and hardcore C++ developers.
The items on efficiency are excellent and many of them apply to languages other than C++. His discussion on requiring heap-based objects for objects that "delete this" is thought provoking. I actually ran into a related bug soon after reading the item.
Like usual, Meyers does an excellent job of building each item from the ground up. This is particularly true in the item on Reference Counting, where he keeps the String class example as simple as possible until more details are needed.
Anyone who has a solid grasp on C++ and wants to bring their skills to the next level should check out this book.
