3-0 out of 5 stars Thorough - but often filled with convoluted waffle.
This book starts out well, explaining the topics clearly and without a lot of unnecessary repetition. Unfortunately, the writing style chops and changes throughout the book with the worst written sections being a real chore to plough your way through.
5-0 out of 5 stars The Best C++ Book
This is by far the best C++ book I have ever read. It is comprehensive, explanations are simple and to the point, and, up-to-date. I am referring to the 4th edition, of course. The earlier editions might be a bit outdated.

4-0 out of 5 stars C++ Primer 2nd Edition: A review
Lippman's book contains an introduction into the world of programming in the C++ language. The book goes from simple basics, assuming you know the basic foundations of a programming language, to in depth coverage of C++ programming. It explains both with examples of the programming language and with detailed explanations of what everything in the explanations means and does. This book is an excellent tool for both learning the C++ language and referencing back while you are working on programming something. However, it is not for the every day reader, as it requires a previous knowledge of basic programming language. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Essential Reading for Real Time C++ Programmers
If you use C++ in real time environments, you need this book.Real time programmers need to understand "what is going on under the covers."This is really the only book I've found that explains it in depth.
5-0 out of 5 stars 5 stars not enough...
I have thought that I had enough knowledge of C++, but after reading this book, I know I was wrong. Detailed discussion of constructor, data member, virtual table, multiple inheritance etc, there are a lot of mysterious details in C++ covered in this book. Yet this book is only 280 pages, which means there are very few redundant words seen in a lot of other tech books.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great for any serious C++ user
If you have been using C++ for a while now, and you REALLY want to know what is going on under the hood, read this book - and gain and again until you have memorized it.As a software architect, I use this book almost on a daily basis - most of the time to prove my case and to show what is really going on behind my design decisions.Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Too concise.
If you're new to programming, do NOT pick up this book.
5-0 out of 5 stars As Simple As Possible, But No Simpler
The enormous success of C Programming Language is, IMHO, because it is simple, flexible and powerful. The whole language is very well written by K&R in the classic book. Every sentence in that book is precise yet complete. For novice, the learning curve of C++ is steep because it is not as simple as C. At least, at first, software developers are afraid of the huge number of features and the inter-connections it offers.
5-0 out of 5 stars Useful for experienced Java Programmers looking at C++
As another reviewer mentioned, Lippman's _Essential C++_ is influenced by the approach taken in _Learning Perl_ (Schwartz).Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Useful book.
You can read the State Pattern in the famous "Design Patterns" book, but the article in this book, "Finite State Machines: A Model of Behavior in C++" by Immo Huneke, explains why the State Pattern is the way it is.That explanation was missing from the "Patterns" book.Also, Robert Martin's intro to this article was helpful. Mr. Martin mentioned he has a freeware "State Machine Compiler". I downloaded it, and it works! Really cool.This one article alone was worth the price of the book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Useful implementation (and design) tips.
This book contains a number of very useful columns from the recentlydeceased C++ report. I found particularly useful the articles onimplementation of assignment operators, exception safety, and the innerworkings of the standard library containers (Gillan, Austern, Sutter). Actually,they are all really about exception safety - clues on how towrite robust code that I needed to learn. 4-0 out of 5 stars Good For experienced Programmer

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
Almost every article in there is still valid although it was written years a go. The greatest authors on OO programming and C++ edited by the GURU MARTIN, (Uncle Bob).If you consider yourself an OO P/A/D and C++ is of interest to you don't miss this book!! Oh and do yourself a favor get the more C++ gems too...

1-0 out of 5 stars I Don't Like It
Though I like "Pattern Hatching" in it, I dislike this book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Definitely not C++ for Dummies
C++ has reached maturity and still doesn't know exactly what it wants to be.This makes C++ both difficult and rewarding.One can approach C++ as a medium for expressing programs, but the richer rewards come when C++ is approached as a medium for expressing design.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good C# introduction for experienced programmers
Lippman's C# Primer assumes that the reader knows C++ or Java. It does not cover basic language constructs so it is not a good choice as a first C# book for people that have not programmed before. The first four chapters include many good insights into the C# language from a professional programmer's point of view. These are hard to find in other texts and make this book worthwhile. A future edition should concentrate on including more language insights and less on WinForms or ASP.NET specifics that are covered better on other texts. Probably some basics should be included to expand its appeal to new programmers.4-0 out of 5 stars A primer for the experienced (C++)
The first 4 chapters (~200 pages) is where it's at. I read his books on C++ and those and this one are right on the mark. Chapter 5-8 are about the .Net Framework (a bit cursory) and dated (pre-release beta) and much has changed. The first 4 chapters are a gem. But where is Stan ? His firm objectwrite.com is nowhere to be seen on the web. Therefore, sample code is not available.

2-0 out of 5 stars C# Primer - Less Than Practical
If you're accustomed to Lippman's previous works, this bookwill fall hopelessly short of expectation.I found this book to be lacking not just in content, but in direction.The "practical approach" employed by Lippman I found to be less-than-practical.The text feels hurried, does not flow well, and the sample code is replete with errors and inconsistencies.There is also alot of useless prose geared towards warming the junior programmer to object-oriented theory.This is not a good book for someone coming from a C++ or Java background hoping to come up to speed on C#.If, on the other hand, you enjoy long-winded hyperbole on "What is a constructor," with ailing code samples to match, this book is for you. ...
