This is a first-rate introductory book that takes a practical approach to solving problems using C++. It covers a much wider scope of C++ programming than other introductory books Ive seen, and in a surprisingly compact format. - Dag Bruck, founding member of the ANSI/ISO C++ committee The authors present a clear, cogent introduction to C++ programming in a way that gets the student writing nontrivial programs immediately. - Stephen Clamage, Sun Microsystems, Inc., and chair of the ANSI C++ committee Anyone reading just this one book and working through the examples and exercises will have the same skills as many professional programmers. - Jeffrey D. Oldham, Stanford University Why is Accelerated C++ so effective? Because it: *Starts with the most useful concepts rather than the most primitive ones: You can begin writing programs immediately. *Describes real problems and solutions, not just language features: You see not only what each feature is, but also how to use it. * Covers the language and standard library together: You can use the library right from the start. The authors proved this approach in their professional-education course at Stanford University, where student

The seller sold a used book as new. The book had the owners name written in the front cover and several notes written in the margins.
I would not trust this seller again.
Regarding the content of the book: mediocre.
I would give it 3 out of 5 stars on content. This is more of an introductory programming book that starts out with HELLO WORLD and not an intermediate programming as some would have you believe. The book is acceptable if you have never programmed before and want a crash course; it is not acceptable as a text if you already program and simply want to learn C++. Many of the examples are too simple. Some of the discussions about programming are quite good. You can do better with alternative learn-by-example books. I am puzzled why this rather lack luster book was chosen to stand beside several truly excellent works in the series.
