"In 1997, I was sent a volume by Nicolai M. Josuttis called Die
C++ Standardbibliothek. I liked it a lot. In fact, I thought it was
the best piece of work on the C++ Standard Library that I'd seen. I
told Addison-Wesley that they should publish an English
"Well, Josuttis has produced another volume, in English, which
is far more than the previous book: more in subject matter, as it
is now subtitled "A Tutorial and Reference," rather than "A
detailed introduction" to ANSI/ISO C++, and more in text with over
200 additional pages. Unfortunately, the CD-ROM that was in the
German volume is no longer part of the book."
"If you use Python, a thorough knowledge of the C++ libraries
will make this text a great deal easier for you, even though Python
is not mentioned by Josuttis. Python is, indeed, interpreted, but
it is object-oriented. And even though the word "tutorial" is
on the cover, you had better know some C++ before you start
reading: the tutorial introduction (chapters 2-4) is an
introduction to the Library, not to the Language."
