If I tell you the publication date of this book is 1999, and has only one edition, many beginner readers will be dismissive that I can imagine. But please note that, whether you are newbie or expert, Essential C++ is the top grade of classic work all the time. In other words, as long as you want to be proficient in C++, then this Essential C++ written by the C++ master Stanley B.Lippman is required.

The whole book reveals the essence of C++ from 4 aspects: procedLJral, gerleric, object-based and object-oriented. It centers on a series of distinguished programming problems, and introduces the language features used to solve these problems. In this way, readers can not only learn the function and structure of C++, but also are able to learn their design purpose and basic principle.

Essential C++ is especially suitable for engineers who transferred from other languages to C++ and desperately need to use C++ to solve the practical programming problems in their projects, thus not very suitable for beginners. For some newbie readers, if you find it’s obscure, please read The C++ Programming Language or C++ Primer Plus instead (C++ Primer is for experienced readers too). BTW, when you felt that Essential C++ is really a good book, then you must have been a C++ master.
