This was a 3-star book based on writing style that got a boost to 4 due to the quality and usefulness of the information it contained.

The information was presented in semi-list form with only a page or two to explain each point. I found that format to be lacking in the details and especially the examples that I would have liked and that would have made it much more clear and easier to understand. The book was probably intended for programmers with more skill and knowledge than I have, which I th

Непогана книжка, особливо для advanced новачка. На відміну від інших книжок Саттера і Александреску ця читається на диво легко, на рівні Мейерса.

З деякими порадами з книги я б посперечался.

I enjoyed this book even if I am not a C++ programmer. Good tips for when a garbage collector is not there to help you.

A useful and interesting collection of guidelines for writing C++. Some of the guidelines are "obvious," but his other reviews have noted, worth repeating. Others are not so obvious and demonstrate subtle traps. One big flaw is that, particularly for the subtle cases, they don't go into enough detail -- they explain that something is bad, maybe even give an example, but not enough to really understand The intricacies of why.

I felt that Scott Meyers' books did a much better job of explaining the

It is a good read but it desperately needs an update with C++11 and 14.

This is an advanced C++ book. I consider it the best book for C++, but be warned that it is not meant to be an introduction. The book seems to be written after "Effective C++", "More Effective C++", "Exceptional C++" and "More Exceptional C++" and includes a lot of wisdom presented in these books in a piecemeal fashion. All the listed books are recommended.

Sometimes it's good to repeat the obvious... Don't optimize prematurely, don't write list.size() == 0 when list.isEmpty() would have accomplished the same, ... Apart from that, this book also covers 99 other recurring pitfalls and misuses in C++ programming. Most of them also apply to other programming languages.

Kept a bookmark inside, to remember to check from time to time some nice general principle (Item 32: Be clear what kind of class you're writing). Full of great stuff and style, sometimes boring though.

This book is "a must" for people involved in software development. The book discusses good programming practices. Though a reader should have enough experience to appreciate advises of this book.

One of a few books like "Effective C++" that is an absolute must-read for C++ programmers. Ignore it at your peril!
