To anyone who has read Effective STL by Scott Meyers, is it still worth reading now?
My concern is that it was released in 2001, so some of the things might not be the right way of doing it now.

That's a really good question. I have his other books but not Effective STL.

I have Effective C++ as well and it's a really great book, so if Effective STL is still up to date I am definitely going to buy it.
Anyone have an opinion on the matter?

It is a good book; but it is dated.
The second edition of 'The C++ Standard Library: A Tutorial and Reference' (Josuttis) is also an excellent book; and it is up to date. So if you are going for one STL book, I suppose it would be a better choice.

Just ordered The C++ Standard Library: A Tutorial and Reference(2 edition). Looks like a very good book, and getting a lot of good reviews.
Thank you for the recommendation.
