From the Back Cover
Templates are among the most powerful features of C++, but they are too often neglected, misunderstood, and misused. C++ Templates: The Complete Guide provides software architects and engineers with a clear understanding of why, when, and how to use templates to build and maintain cleaner, faster, and smarter software more efficiently.
C++ Templates begins with an insightful tutorial on basic concepts and language features. The remainder of the book serves as a comprehensive reference, focusing first on language details, then on a wide range of coding techniques, and finally on advanced applications for templates. Examples used throughout the book illustrate abstract concepts and demonstrate best practices.
- The exact behaviors of templates
- How to avoid the pitfalls associated with templates
- Idioms and techniques, from the basic to the previously undocumented
- How to reuse source code without threatening performance or safety
- How to increase the efficiency of C++ programs
- How to produce more flexible and maintainable software
This practical guide shows programmers how to exploit the full power of the template features in C++.
The companion Web site at http://www.josuttis.com/tmplbook/ contains sample code and additional updates.

It is definitely NOT FOR BEGINNERS. Readers should already have some experience in C++ development. An experience using template libraries such as STL, ATL, WTL, collectioin classes in MFC or other will be very helpful.
The book contains a concize guide on C++ template basics in the first part with a detailed reference guide in the following parts.
I have found on the authors' website that the book is also available in Russian and Polish languages.
If you work on templates and have some doubts ever then have this book next to you.
