    Search amazon for C++ then pick the one's with higher number of ratings.

    I liked Herbert Schildt books but it's because I liked his writing style compared to my Uni text....which I thought was horrible but some people liked it. He's very words but back in the day, that's what I needed.

    I find that now that I know more about programming, I like more concise books. Books that get straight to the point. The Wrox books have been pretty good in this regard but those are on other subject. I haven't read a wrox book on C++.

    Perhaps you should head to the University or local library and see if they have any that appeal to you. Then you can try it before you buy it.

    I really liked Savitch's Absolute C++. It is a nice book, but is more of a textbook I guess (paperback). I used it in college.

    Deitel and Deitel C++ had tons of good examples and exercises.
