Not for the complete beginner in C++
This book covers the important aspects of OO approach as well as the STL for C++. It is definitely not suitable for those who have no programming experience in C, and indeed, I find that one actually even needs to have a little knowledge of C++ to benefit from the book. The first two chapters let the C programmer make a transition to C++, and explain clearly on input and output in C++. The next three chapters then strive to explain the OO features in C++.
Generally, the book goes at lengths to illustrate classes in C++ and their workings, and offers many tips and traps as well as certain programming styles and approaches which would produce robust programs. The worked examples were also quite comprehensive. However I feel that the concepts of OO were not well illustrated, and from my experience, a thorough understanding of OO concepts help very much in being able to manipulate classes and using the methods in C++. The chapter on MFC was not very useful, it really looked as if it was just there to fill in space. It does not teach much about MFC.
All in all, however, I would still consider it a fairly good book to keep as a reference.

Recommended as a first C++ text.
A lucid traversal of basic OOP concepts and the C++ language. Lots of exercises, at a rather low level of detail. J&K focus on the basics, avoiding the trap that others (e.g. Lippman & La Joie) fall into of trying to cover too many advanced topics in an introductory text. A scattering of typos and minor errors should not confuse the perceptive reader.

A good job that can be rewritten for another edition
This book is concise but clear. I think the typesetting in this book could be redone better to give it better readability.More diagrams & few more example would make it perfect.The authors explains many subtle points of C++. This book is good for academic settings if you already knows C & Data Structures. Overall, a good concise book.
