Hi, I wonder if anyone can give me some advice on which C++ book to purchase.

I am fairly competant at C, i have been learning C++ at Uni(No book recommended from the tutor). I have a big project coming up at work, which involved 'threads' and other programming techniques that i am not too familiar with - can anyone advise me which is the best book to buy, that will cover a bit of basic c++, and also lots of the more advanced aspects of the language.
