I'd recommend to choose one of these two books:

Programming: Principles and Practice Using C++, 2nd Ed., Bjarne Stroustrup https://www.amazon.com/Programming-Principles-Practice-Using...

C++ Primer, 5th Ed., Stanley Lippman https://www.amazon.com/Primer-5th-Stanley-B-Lippman/dp/03217...

For a very brief introduction:

A Tour of C++, Bjarne Stroustrup https://www.amazon.com/Tour-C-Depth/dp/0321958314/ref=sr_1_1...

That's his reference book. It's not designed for systematic learning. It's designed as a reference, as in "cut-and-paste stuff". You want one of his other books, meant to take you from zero to literate in not just C++11 but programming in general: https://www.amazon.com/Programming-Principles-Practice-Using...

As an example, here's the game of life written in Elixir:

How much better that is than a C++ version, I don't know. But if you want to get better at C++ and give it a try, forget what you know and read this book: http://www.amazon.com/Programming-Principles-Practice-Using-...
