Customer Review

on January 8, 2010
Bjarne Stroustrup was a guest lecturer at my intro to C++ class (ENGR 112) at Texas A&M University. He would come in 3-4 lectures a month and teach us. He is a very fun and interesting person to be around as well as easy to talk to. Very humble despite the feats his invention created.

Back in 2006, he was still writing this book and using my class as a testing ground for it. We'd have to go to the copy store every week or two to get the next chapter. Sometimes the chapters were error free...sometimes not. We were very vocal about grammar and compile errors using his code line-by-line. Regardless, this is quality material. The only reason why I'd by this book again is so that I don't have to lug around a 4" binder full of loose-leaf paper.

I had tried all throughout high school to learn C++. Everything I did failed, but his material and my main professor got me going. This book proves that if you are going to learn C++, you got to learn from its father. I just wish there was a Kindle edition. Big reference books aren't as easy to read as something like a Kindle.
