    If you want a definitive work, get

    "The C++ Programming Language" by Bjarne Stroustrup

    On the other hand, it isn't for beginners, it isn't easy to read and it doesn't really explain a lot of things very well. It has many chapters about STL and algorithms, stuff that C++ programmers really should be using.

    The best book is probably Teach yourself C++ in 21 days, I never read it though. I have Teach yourself Java 2 in 21 days and it's the best programming book I ever read.

    You might want to look up www.codewarrioru.com (metrowerks educational site). They offer free online classes and have book reccomendations there to go along with the classes. Other than that I do reccomend 'practical c++ programming' by oreilly.

    I like the combination of "The C++ programming Language" by Stroustrup and "C++ How to Program" by Deitel & Deitel. Those are probably my two favorite C++ books.
