"Thinking in C++" is one of the best (infact "the best") books to learn C++ comprehensively

Hi Sys_Prog,
> "Thinking in C++" is one of the best
Agree. I like Eckel's books. The Java one is also great.

Cheers,
Stefan

Yes,

I really feel that every C++ programmer should read "Thinking in C++"
No matter which other book he has read, a person who has not read Eckel's book is missing something in C++ (that's my personal opinion)

Thank you for your input....   I think I will place my bet in "Thinking in C++"

I wasn't quite expecting people to answer considering this is a help, site, not a tutorial site....

Thank you very much
