A Tour of C++ (Third edition)

Addison-Wesley. ISBN-10: 0-13-681648-7. September 2022.

The ``tour'' is a quick (254 pages + index, historical information, etc.) tutorial overview of all of standard C++ (language and standard library) at a moderately high level for people who already know C++ or at least are experienced programmers. It covers C++20 plus a few likely features of C++23.

Information from the publisher.

Available here:

If you are looking for a more complete description of C++ and the styles of programming it supports, consider The C++ Programming Language (4th Edition).

If you are looking for an an introduction to programming for people who has never programmed before, consider Programming -- Principles and Practice Using C++. That book is also be useful for people who have programmed a bit and want to improve their style and technique - or to simply learn modern C++. It is designed for classroom use, but written with an eye on self study.

Reviews

I don't have to agree with a review or blog post to list it, but it helps if I think at least some parts make sense. Few people write serious reviews these days.
