Excellent book, as expected from Mike (I own many). Covers basics but also has quite a bit of depth. Nice clear examples. Good for learning, but then also as a reference.

HASH(0x9b0a8d8c) out of 5 stars Easy to follow June 22 2012
By Lourdes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my 14 yr old son to teach himself C++ over the summer. So far so good, the pages are easy to read, and the colorful visual graphics are engaging and not boring. He has learned to download the compiler and write basic arithmetic functions, operations etc. It's not a whole lot of jargon and the explanations are in plain english for beginner programmers or "wanna be" programmers. I'm glad he's enjoying the book and is motivated to learn programming on his own. The book has a lot of exercises and examples so when you write a program, you can compare the screenshots.

HASH(0x9b0a8fd8) out of 5 stars A little too basic to be truly useful June 1 2013
By B. Snyder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've not written code since I graduated college 13yrs ago. I'm considering going back to school to earn my MS and was looking for something to help relearn C++. I picked this one up due to its favorable reviews.

I'm not sure if the material is at a level lower than my skill or if I overestimated how much I'd lost in the years. There are no complete blocks of sample code in the book. The step-by-step instructions for each example have you define functions, start your main function, go back and add code to the defined functions, come back and add to the main. I found it somewhat confusing without seeing a complete block of example code. The source code is available to download, but that doesn't do much for you if you're reading on a train/bus/etc.

The book claims you do not need programming experience. I'll just say that If I handed this book to my somewhat tech savvy mother, she'd be able to recreate the example, but she wouldn't learn much about programming. It does explain things at a very basic level that may give a complete novice a place to start from, but they'd need to buy another book or take a class to learn more about thinking in terms of problem solving with a program etc. The entire book is along the lines of "Here is this data type/function" and "Here's how it works". It does give some examples, but very basic.

HASH(0x9b0a8f9c) out of 5 stars Book says what it does. May 7 2015
By Lauren A Rood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There are a bunch of newer coding books that are written in this manner and I find them very useful. You really do cruise through the basics and write meaningful code fairly quickly. The books make good references later on as well.

HASH(0x9b0a92ac) out of 5 stars good book Jan. 6 2014
By stochasticmind - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I think this is a good book to buy; it is not expensive, and has admirable qualities. The design, color and typeset are beautiful and attractive. It quickly goes through a wealth of basic material to get you started. I actually think this is not quite a beginner's book to programming; it is too dense and does not develop intuition for object oriented programming but it makes up for it with brevity. It is perfect for someone who has previous experience with some programming or starting with another mainstream introductory book to C++ and needs a supplement. I would have given it 5 stars for that purpose.

HASH(0x9b0a930c) out of 5 stars Good book but not very broad Dec 2 2013
By zanek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Good book for learning C++ programming but doesn't go into programming strategy. It is purely about the terms used in C++ coding. It just uses text outputs, and doesn't go into input until later in the book.
