I learned C++ from the 1990 edition of the Annotated C++ Reference
It's not for everyone. It's probably not for most people in fact -
it's really an implementor's guide. But it also goes through the
language semantics, design decisions (including pointing out those
where C++ chose wrongly), and gives implementation hints for things
like inheritance. The biggest downside is that, being a language
reference, it has no information on the STL.
I feel that most "learn a new language" books I've read try to teach
both the language *and* general programming at the same time - but at
some point, you really just want the former. Highly recommend this
book to anyone who is looking for the former to an extreme.
