I'm in search of an introductory text on C++ Programming that approaches its task from a theoretical/philosophical perspective. It's the way I learn. Imagery and diagrams are also quite helpful to me. If I get the conceptual framework of something, the details tend to fall into place much easier.
I may be suffering from death by research. I've read every post in C++ book thread over on The C Board (twice). I've thoroughly studied the recommendations on the ACCU website. Additionally, I've poured over the 4-star and up texts on C++ Programming at Amazon.com, as well as reading the user comments. I've posted on other forums.
I need focus (I need a book). I noted that "Accelerated C++: Practical Programming by Example" by Koenig and Moo got 5 recommendations on the C Board thread, "Highly Recommended" over on ACCU and 80 votes on Amazon averaging 4.5 stars (for whatever that's worth). Can anyone comment on this book's vantage point with respect to the stuff I wrote up above in the first paragraph? Simply put, would it be a good choice?
I just finished "Absolute Beginner's Guide to C" by Greg Perry in an effort to learn some vocabulary and syntax from a bit lower level before delving into C++. There are thousands of texts on C++ programming. Literally. I'm sure that the right book (for me) is out there. I just need a gentle push in the right direciton.
