As a fellow passenger on that boat:

The 4th edition of Stroustrup's classic was updated to reflect modern practices. [0]

Scott Meyers, author of Effective C++ also wrote Modern Effective C++. [1]

Lastly for pure online reference, cppreference.com. [2]

Unfortunately it's not terse but Effective Modern C++ by Scott Meyers is a good resource.

Some resources:

The Definitive C++ Book Guide and List : http://stackoverflow.com/questions/388242/the-definitive-c-b...

I like the breakdown of books by their goals in this FAQ : https://isocpp.org/wiki/faq/how-to-learn-cpp

I would say 'C++ Primer 5th Edition' and 'The C++ Programming Language 4th Edition' are good.

And of course, Effective Modern C++, although the other Effective series books from Meyers are a must read.

Probably you're already aware of this but it might be useful for you or others. Item 4 of Scott Meyers' Effective Modern C++[1] shows you how to get some type information without needing to open the headers yourself.

I really enjoyed Effective Modern C++. It covered the interesting stuff I wanted to know, and skipped the introductory "in case you've never programmed before" fluff.

I doubt this will be a surprise to anyone but the latest book by Scott Meyers is truly a pleasure to read and allows you get up to speed with c++11 and c++14. http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920033707.do

I'm reading the PDF and it's quite good.

Has anyone taken a look at the new versions of Bjarne Stroustrup's C++ Programming Language [1] or Scott Meyer's Effective Modern C++ [2]? The originals are classics, and I would be interested to know if the new versions hold up.
