The quote in the introduction:
The ability to ignore details is a characteristic of maturing technologies. For example, early automobiles broke down so often that every driver had to be an amateur mechanic. It would have been foolhardy to go for a drive without knowing how to get back home even if something went wrong. Today's drivers don't need detailed engineering knowledge in order to use a car for transportation. ...
got me thinking and asking: "It's already 2013. Why is C++ is still being taught like it's C with classes."
My question maybe due to the filtered perception I have from the types of questions being asked in the C/C++ forum where beginning programming students are dealing with arrays, pointers, and linked lists. Perhaps there is hope that C++ is being taught in a much better format now rather than just translating the K&R C book into C++ and then tacking on how to use classes afterwards.

Reason for edit:: The book is for sale, so I swapped out the links
