yes, it's the most modern comprehensive reference on the C++ standard and goes over a bunch of dos and don'ts. If you're already comfortable with programing in general I would just go straight to that; if not then I would start with "programing: principals and techniques using C++" which is written by Bjarne too and teaches programing using C++ rather than teaching the C++ language.
if you want something in between learning to programing and learning C++ then another book I've heard good things about is "accelerated C++". "thinking in C++" looks good as well, but it's free(as in beer)!! so I would probably pick that up instead
