This book does an excellent job of teaching the basic and not-so-basic fundamentals of C++ in a game programming context (which makes all the difference). The lessons are clear and well organized and the author explains concepts extremely well IMO. There are numerous examples in the book that illustrate the concepts perfectly, and larger programs that tie everything together. This book is intended for those with no programming skills but if you know the basics and are a little rusty, this book's perspective could be very beneficial.
