    New book

    I just got my second C++ book... I was tempted by a special on amazon and now I have Sams teach yourself C++ for Linux in 21 days.

    I'm looking forward to reading it, so far it looks good as a newbie book, and as a plus it jumps right into OO programming, which is the REALLY cool part of C++.

    I'm not very fond of SAMS. I have a few of their books and the quality is really lacking.

    8) O'Reilly 8)

    ;D

    I got Learn C++ Today!. Its geared toward Windows, (Borland C++) and I never made it all the way through. Hope your book is better.

    I have one other book by Sam, the Mandrake 7.0 guide... and it sucks ass. But the C++ one looks good so far, but as I said it's geared towards C++ newbies like myself and has a strong focus on OO.

    I hope it's better than the Deitel & Deitel one I'm using in school... it sucks ass on a level which is hard to imagine

    How much did it cost? USD if you can? I know some C++ but I would like to convert that knowledge to Linux programming...

    Re: New book

    I learned C++ with the Sams book. *It's quite good as a starter, but I didn't like the OO programs they made:

    Code:
    class Animal {};
    class Bird: public Animal {};
    class Sparrow: public Bird {};
    class CommonSparrow: public Sparraw {};
    And so on *Can there be anything more boring?

    w00t !

    So far I really like the book, I just read the chapter on Operator Overloading, and it explains the stuff really well. Better than my Deitel & Deitel book.

    I found it easier to grasp concepts with that book...
