I'm finshed with teach yourself c++ in 21 days. It's been fairly good at teaching the basics, but I have two books I need to select from to read next:

c++ programming language --bjarne stroustrup
the c++ standard template library

I just don't which to read next. Which would you guys choose?

I take it the STL is very important? I was thinking people would lean toward Bjarne's book, but I guess I was wrong.

PS: Thanks for the link. I wish I had found it earlier(before I bought a few books of course).
