C++ books?

Hello, I am definitely an amateur when it comes to programming, I've learnt the basics from the website but it would be nice to re-enforce my knowledge by reading it from a book. I travel allot and am a keen reader so it would be perfect for me to enjoy some casual learning while on a long trip, was wondering if anybody knew of any in depth tutorial books on C++, price is irrelevant, if it's expensive, I'll save up for it.

Printing of the tutorial and reading of it isn't a good response.

Happy reading!


Oooh there's an assembly one two :D
Way back in my freshman year in college, we were given a book or the c resource book as my instructor would say. It was entitled The C programming language co authored by the main man himself, Dennis Ritchie. I would have to say that it was a lot of help as it went through a lot of topics. It provided a complete list of header files and syntax. Though, you will probably learn faster by doing it first hand.

There are ebooks you can download online.

this is my favourite book I'd recommend it once you're at an intermediate level, not as a complete beginner however.
Great stuff guys,
decided to buy an Ebook.
Thanks B)
