Five outstanding C++ books, handpicked by C++ creator Bjarne Stroustrup -- all packaged in an attractive gift box at a special price!

-- Includes Andrei Alexandrescu's Modern C++ Design -- the cutting-edge approach to C++ design that leverages patterns and generic programming.

-- Includes two of the world's most powerful C++ tutorials: Accelerated C++ and Essential C++.

-- Includes both of Herb Sutter's world-renowned "Guru of the Week" C++ puzzle collections: Exceptional C++ and More Exceptional C++.

C++ is the world's #1 programming language. Now, Bjarne Stroustrup, C++'s inventor, has hand-selected five books that every C++ programmer should own -- and Addison-Wesley has packaged them in an attractive gift box, at an outstanding price. In Modern C++ Design, Andrei Alexandrescu opens new vistas for C++ programmers. Alexandrescu offers a cutting-edge approach to design that unites design patterns, generic programming, and C++, enabling programmers to achieve expressive, flexible, and highly reusable code. Accelerated C++'s uniquely modern approach will help you master C++ faster and more fluently than ever before. Based on intensive summer C++ courses taught at Stanford University, it covers virtually every concept that most professional C++ programmers will ever use -- turning the "traditional" C++ curriculum upside down, starting with the high-level C++ data structures and algorithms that let you write robust programs fast. Stanley B. Lippman's Essential C++ is an outstanding quick-start guide to ANSI C++ that moves experienced programmers from procedural to object-oriented development by presenting specific examples and solutions that teach exactly what's needed to getimmediate results. Finally, in Exceptional C++ and More Exceptional C++, Herb Sutter collects more than 100 of the most popular Guru of the Week C++ puzzles and problems read by thousands of programmers on the comp.lang.c++.moderated newsgroup -- each designed to help developers master C++ features and techniques they'll find especially valuable.
