You will not find one golden C++ reference. But this book comes closer to that ideal than any other C++ book I have seen. A lot of topics are touched on, but not-in-depth. This is a very general book that gives you the features of C++11 and introduces some programming paradigms. If you want a book on programming effectively with C++, you will have to look elsewhere. If you want a book to explain OOP, you will have to look elsewhere.
