I am a brand new programmer attempting to teach myself C++. I understand that it is a rather complex language to begin with but I also understand it to be the most useful in the long run and one of the best building blocks for learning other languages. With that being said, I would like some recommendations on the best books out there for teaching this programming language. I intend to use Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Express.
