With Teach Yourself C++ in 21 Days, author Jesse Liberty presents a rapid and well-organized program for getting up to speed in C++ programming. By making the seemingly complex world of C++ digestible in daily doses, Liberty delivers a tutorial that keeps you motivated and yields serious results.
This book uses a chapter-a-day approach, with the course outline clearly presented inside the front cover so you'll know exactly where you're headed. Unlike many C++ tutorials, this book doesn't put you to sleep early on with object-oriented programming (OOP) theory. Instead, it quickly makes you productive with the basics of the C++ language and then reinforces your new knowledge with OOP as you move through the teaching program.
The first week introduces you to the fundamentals: the anatomy of a C++ program, variables, expressions, functions, program flow, and the basics of classes. Week two introduces some of the more sophisticated elements of the language such as pointers, arrays, and function overloading in a clear and effective manner. The final week concludes your crash course with advanced topics: streams, advanced inheritance, the C++ pre-processor, templates, and error handling. One day is also devoted strictly to object-oriented analysis and design. Each chapter finishes with a daily summary, a Q&A section, a quiz, and a series of excellent coding exercises.
This tutorial, which is designed to teach you to write industry standard ANSI C++ code, requires no previous programming expertise. If you want to get serious with C++ in a hurry, this book is an excellent way to go.
This book is a timesaving guide to learning C++. Using the proven techniques of the Teach Yourself series, this essential guide teaches users how to write programs in a matter of days. Covers all the key topics and commands of C++. Teaches the basics of object-oriented programming. Teaches C++ without the need to know C or any other programming language. Covers C++ Programming. -- Sams Pub. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

If you are a novice to C++ and looking for a solid basis for further and more in-depth reading on this rather challenging language, I strongly recommend this text as your first contact with it, always keeping in mind though that there is always more to be learnt from other sources. It did work for me and I bet it will work for you!!
I finally came across Jesse's 3rd edition of "Leaning C++ in 21 Days" and life if beautiful again. His examples and easily read text gave me the knowledge to read code, and more important to understand it. The book takes the time to explain terms, definitions and the why's and wherefores of the C++ language. Particularly interesting to me was memory management and why I should be concerned about it. I no longer bang out code that "just" works. I assimilate the books ideas into programs that one may call an art form.
You will never know how grateful I am to have this book as a resource. I have scribbled in the margins, highlighted, dog-eared, paper clipped important pages, made a file of example programs and on long study nights used it as a pillow. I can't wait to get "C++ Unleashed" and abuse it in the same loving way!
If you don't have prior programming experience this book is a must. If you are a C programmer you need this book to get with the new way of doing programming!
