In practice, this is more a book of good development practices, a bit like Code Complete, but more concise and slightly directed towards public API development.

I didn't learn anything new, but it's a nice compilation and might be worth for beginners.

Great first few chapters with practical advice on C++ API design; rest of the book devolved into high-level rehash of other works, a lot of it out of date.
Good book to check C++ related knowledge coverage, to spot a gaps.
Good resource for beginners, but I learned almost nothing.
Nothing unique, new or particularly advanced But it's nice to have all this material in one source.
