Book is good but
This book is great & gives you the insight of "C++ templates" but for beginners even advanced C++ programmer who want to start templates please DO NOT buy this book at first sight...go for STL Programming by Herbert Schildt. This book assumes you already KNOW templates VERY WELL.

A worthy reference
A very good reference book on the subject. It made many things more clear to me that I had been uncertain about.
The only weakness lies in Part IV: Advanced Applications, chapter Smart Pointers, and chapter on Function Objects abd Callbacks, which do not exploit their subject to the full extent. I recommend the book Andrei Alexandrescu: Modern C++ Design for more discussion on these.

Great book on templetes
Actually, the ONLY book on this topic, that covers the topic well actually... This book will be the bible in the topic, and it should .. Very well written packed with examples and how to's, etc... Great learning experience. For c++ people, you should read this book, and go right to Modern C++ Design. A very good combo. One of the best things about the book is that it had a section dedicated on some of the futures changes to this topic as templates are still fairly developing. You know what to expect if you are an architect.
