Hey, I decided I should probably read a book to learn about C++ considering there are so many and etc :P.
My parents said they would buy it for me, but I just wanna make sure it is gunna actually be a book that will teach me alot and hopefully not be extremely confusing/boring.
I already read the sticky, but I would like more of a personal opinion of the book. So, I was wondering, off of personal opinion... Which would be the best for someone looking for...
- work-your-way-up sort of learning, hopefully with real-code examples.
- not too explained, but still enough to learn/understand.
- hopefully not too boring, I like programming and exciting until I read a book about it. "Place your text here and it will do this function. This function is done because it is in your text at the top of the text editor. Grab your scroll bar and scroll up and you will notice your function is there. This function is used when called by your main sequence." That really bores the hell out of me X_X.
- A very good overview of all of C++. I don't want to just learn the essential basics, I would also like to learn how to do some decently advanced operations.
- If at all possible, hopefully it will describe/work with VC++ well.
So, hopefully some of you have actually read the books and know which one would be most useful...
-- I already have "The C Programming Language by Kernighan and Ritchie."
Thanks for reading :D.
