Try http://www.amazon.com.
They have excellent book reviews by both editor and readers.
//www.fatbrain.com also has some good reviews and their price is sometime even lower.

I you already know C/C++ then you will want to study up on MFC and Windows programming if you are going to be a VC++ guru.  MFC is the part of VC++ that makes it different form normal C/C++.  MFC are the classes for creating Windows, dialogs, buttons etc. CodeGuru sight has some good examples and forums, the MSDN CD's that come with Visual Studio are very useful but nothing will beat a good book such as Programming Windows by Charles Petzold.  Also check out www.codeproject.com  www.tipworld.com.  Don't buy Special Edition Using VC++ as it's crap and expensive.  Avoid Visual C++ Bible byLeinecker because it is poorly set out and badly written.  Sams' Teach yourself VC++ 6 in 21 days is okay but the title is misleading ;)

I agree with vetri.
That was what I had in mind a couple of days ago but just didn't get around to mention that.
Nevertheless, Petzold's book mentioned by Dougalli was the first book I studied.
Just an extra vote:)
