The C++ Programming Language

Addison-Wesley, ISBN 0-201-12078-X.

Here is the preface.

Back Cover text:

Here is the definitive reference and guide to the C++ programming language, which was designed and implemented by author Bjarne Stroustrup.

C++ is a superset of C that retains the efficiency and notational convenience of C, while providing facilities for:

This book contains the tutorial and explanatory material necessary to allow a serious programmer to learn C++ and to complete real projects. The text is intended for computer science students and professional programmers who want to learn about this latest development of the C programming language.
This book was published in 1985 and is not up-to-date. I have written more recent books on C++. You can find information about C++ from my homepage.
