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.

Two issues for me that they could improve:
-The code parts are hard to follow, they keep referring to off-page code samples so I just don't bother flipping the pages. If they could use a bit more plain English or a way to print out the complete programs on a separate piece of paper it would go a long way. (They let you download the code samples afaik but a cutout inside the book would have been easier)
-No Parallelism chapter. They probably thought it was too big an issue to tackle in their book but I would have liked a small intro with a recommended book or something. After reading that book you will be able to write extremely sophisticated, highly optimized... serial code.
The book starts from the very beginning, i.e. "Hello World!" As you get further into the book, you start getting a deeper understanding of the standard library, and you learn to use it to your advantage when designing programs. The book also provides notes, and tips on how to use the information you learn in the best way, thus encouraging good programming habits. Along with these features, the book is also fully-updated for the new C++11 standard, and you will quickly start to understand all of the new additions to the language in very easy-to-understand tutorials. The book allows you to put your learning to work by providing exercises for you to experiment with.
If you are trying to learn C++, then I strongly recommend you get this book, as it will really help you build a foundation in the C++ programming language, and it will be easier for you to transition into the more advanced parts of programming.
