I recommend "C++ How to program" byt Deital and Deital for Absolute beginners.

I also recommend "The C++ Programming Language" as a 2nd supliment to any book.  it is mostly aimed at people with some programming experience, but not C/C++ experience.

I recommend the Scott Meyers "Effective C++" for advanced users.  These are absolutely essential reading.

Also essential are "C++ FAQs", by Marshall Cline, Greg Lomow, and Mike Girou, and once you've reached an advanced stage, "The C++ Programming Language" by Bjarne Stroustrup himself, which is a horrible learning book but excellent reference material.

I suggest you grab "DATA STRUCTURES AND OTHER OBJECTS USING C++" by Michael Main & Walter Savitch. It's a good book for beginners to experts.

I also recommend you to reach
