About the Author
Stanley B. Lippman has retired back to the Catalina Foothills where he is working on EEEK!, a computational model of the nervous system of the House Mouse, and An Off By One Error, a speculative novel set in the Northwestern Rain Forest. During his professional career, Stanley served as Distinguished Consultant for the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Architect for the Visual C++ development group at Microsoft, member of technical staff at Bell Laboratories, two stints in Massive Multiplayer Online Gaming, and a surprisingly long stint in Feature Animation at Disney, DreamWorks, Pixar, and PDI. Stanley will be most remembered for his many years working with Dr. Stroustrup on the implementation of cfront, the standard implementation of C++ until the ISO standard.
Josée Lajoie, now at Pixar, was a member of IBM Canada’s C/C++ compiler development team, and chaired the core language working group for the original ANSI/ISO C++ standardization committee.
Barbara E. Moo has nearly thirty years of software experience. During her fifteen years at AT&T, she worked closely with C++ inventor Bjarne Stroustrup and managed the C++ development team for several years.

Right now I am having trouble figuring out what std::map and using map does in Cpp until I read a couple pages then I immediately understand the key features.
Really, an awesome book that covers everything (?) of C++ language and give the newcomers to programming (in general) a solid background. It explains a lot: starts from basics like sintaxe, variables, functions, libraries, and others (considering structured programming) and only after that it goes to object oriented programming and C++ coverage about it. But I guess it should have a little more pages to cover better some aspects like 'preprocessors' (while it's a bit advanced topic, it's still a C++ topic that you will need to know - my way of thinking).
Approximately three or four months ago (I acquired it in August 2011 - I haven't had much time to read it and I had a whole mountain of books to read), I finished it with great smile: I learned C++ and the money was well spent. Now, time will give me experience - together with more advanced books that covers code optimization, inner work of C++, algorithms and so on.
I recommend it for anyone - including those that doesn't have English as a mother tongue (like myself), experts or novices. But be prepared because it's a gigantic book.
Note: I don't like to read only one book covering one subject. So I like to read at least 2 (or have more than one for future consultations). I suggest you doing the same.
