Learning C++

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Steve Heller's books : One Thread

I think I'll tackle one of the other primers first before I dive into Bjarne's world. Then I'll go into it. But, frankly, I never would have made it on these before your series. I began with your books as it was the only one I could find anywhere with a glossary. This was a big plus to me as I am familiar with the importance of understanding the words you're reading. Along this line, I'm curious if you plan to write any more books in the C++ series. Now, I realize that after I finish the "...more C++ ?" book I'll probably have enough of a grounding to study any other book I want, but I sure would buy it if you wrote another, unnecessary though it may be. I can't actually imagine how people learned this language before the coverage you've given it. I picked up several other books on the subject and wasn't able to make it past the second chapter in any of them.

Future books

I'm not planning to write any more books immediately following the More C++ book. However, I do have another C++ book in the works; this one is about how I would have done things differently in earlier projects in my career if I had had my current knowledge of C++. That one might be of interest to you, but it won't be out until early next year (if Y2K doesn't get us first).
