After several years using other languages, mostly Objective C, I had to return to C++ this morning. I played around around for a few hours, and it was obvious I needed a brush up. There were many changes in C++ 11 that I wasn't aware of...
The book certainly did live up to it's title: I was not only impatient, I was in a crazy hurry. I bought it this morning, around 11. It is now 20:00 (that's 8 PM, my dear american friends ;-) and I just finished reading it. This is BY FAR the best intro to C++ I've seen: short (for a C++ book) and to the point.
If you need to learn C++ or brush up your skills, by all means buy it. The author did a terrific job. Thank you so much and congrats! :-)
