I like https://www.amazon.com/Tour-2nd-Depth-Bjarne-Stroustrup/dp/0134997832/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=C%2B%2B+in+depth&qid=1562532539&s=gateway&sr=8-3, the Tour of C++.

I learned C++ in a really unstructured way, I learned C++11, and I basically just kept at looking at new proposals that were being introduced into the language and I was like hey these are pretty nice, I'll use them.

For a quick (256 pages) overview of modern C++ (2018), I like "A Tour of C++" by Stroustrup.



"Accelerated C++" by Koenig and Moo is also a good short intro (352 pages), but is dated (2000).

A tour of C++, by B. Stroustrup. Short (~250pages) and accessible introduction to the language and libraries. The second edition has been updated for C++17 and some parts of C++20.

C++ Primer, by Stanley B. Lippman, Josée Lajoie, and arbara E. Moo. Really huge book, 970+ pages. Covers almost everything from the language, updated for C++11. I wouldn't use it as a beginner though.

The first one is really nice introduction, I picked it up a few months ago to learn the language. Quick read, simple to follow, I really enjoy this book. The second one works as a reference as it goes way more in details and covers a massive amount of stuff!

This is from the author of C++ : A Tour of C++ https://www.amazon.com/dp/0134997832/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_t1_FjjXCbC9VH5HS

Someone who has come to the city first time needs a tour first. He must not get missed in details. So https://www.amazon.com/dp/0134997832/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_t1_FjjXCbC9VH5HS should be a good choice to start with.

I'm surprised that the ship time for Tour is so long on Amazon (the link here says 1-2 months: https://smile.amazon.com/Tour-2nd-Depth-Bjarne-Stroustrup-dp-0134997832/dp/0134997832/ref=mt_paperback?_encoding=UTF8&me=&qid=1556289192 ). Does anyone have a better place to buy it from, or is there a newer edition that caused this? I could always read it online I guess instead of buying the book but I like having physical programming books for some things.
