Books play an important role in everyone’s life. Not only do they help us to enrich our knowledge and spark our imagination, but they also show us a way to connect with the world around us. Books have neither limitations nor prejudices. They can be good friends to each of us. And give us answers to questions we’ve been searching for. Books give us knowledge and a new outlook. Books span every field – politics, business, economics, lifestyle, health and many more.

Books about topics spanning the tech world are more than exciting. And especially suitable for people who are just entering the tech field – from programmers to managers and leaders.

To get a closer look at the essence of a programming language and get more familiar with it, there’s hardly a better way to do it than by reading books written by professionals in the field. And today we have chosen to present to you the Top 8 Best C++ Books for Beginners

The C++ Programming Language (4th Edition) By Bjarne Stroustrup
The interesting thing about this book is that it is written by the well-known Bjarne Stroustrup, the creator of C++. Its content is so impressive that it can be of use to programmers of any level. This is the fourth edition of the book. It contains extensive details about C++ and exercises to practice. This book helps programmers to learn many things about C++ such as basic concepts of C++, containers, libraries, OOPS and many more. The author has also contributed to the world of programming with some other books written on C++.

C++ Primer (5th Edition)
This book is the 5th edition of C++ Primer, written by Stanley B. Lipman, a computer scientist and author and also known as a professional who worked with Bjarne Stroustrup at Bell Laboratories during the early stages of C++ development.

The book begins with an introduction to the C++ standard library. It enables the programmer to write useful programs without mastering every aspect of the C++ language. The book consists of many examples with demonstrations.

It is ideal for beginners who have a marked interest in learning the basic concepts and techniques of C++. With the help of the examples provided in this book, one can learn the best programming styles and program design techniques.

C++ Pocket Reference 1st Edition Accelerated C++
This is an introductory book that contains a practical approach to problem solving using C++, was written by Andrew Koenig. This book covers a broader scope of C++ programming than is usually found in introductory books.

In addition to the features of the language, throughout its pages you will find real-world problems and solutions explained. The language and standard library are covered, and learning the standard libraries helps from the start.

C++ All-in-One For Dummies 3rd Edition
This handbook ranks among the favorites of professionals who claim it contains the best C++ guide for C++ programmers. John Paul Mueller, a well-known authority in the software industry, wrote this book. What do you learn in this book?
To learn working with objects and classes.
To learn advanced coding skills using various C++ concepts.
To discover how lambda expressions are useful to make code more concise and readable.
To produce code faster and better than ever.

C++ Pocket Reference
Written by Kyle Loudon, the book serves as a supplemental reference for C++ programmers. It helps programmers quickly reference the usage and syntax of unfamiliar and rarely used aspects of the language.

This book contains a variety of important information about C++, such as information about C++ types and type conversions, C++ command syntax and preprocessor directives, pointers, arrays, expressions, strings, and more. Also explained in this book are C++ concepts such as namespaces and scopes.

A Tour of C++ (C++ In-Depth Series) 1st Edition
Another brilliant masterpiece by Bjarne Stroustrup. In this book, programmers will find a complete reference to the basic concepts of C++ and practical coding. This enables programmers to better understand what modern C++ is all about. This short book can be called a self-contained guide.

The book covers many features of the C++ language, basic components of the standard library, key examples, and coding examples. This book provides a high level of guidance for programmers to understand a meaningful overview of the language.

A Complete Guide to Programming in C++
Ula Kirch-Prinz and her book became a bestseller among beginners. In the contents of the book, the components of the C++ language are developed in a better way. It gives guidelines on how to document functions and also shows the difference between pointers and arrays. It teaches about the basics, basic types, variables and constants.

Programmers also learn how to use functions and classes and input and output with streams. It provides knowledge about operators for basic types, control flow, character constants and macros, arithmetic type conversion, and functions of the standard String class.

Beginning C++ Through Game Programming
The 3rd Edition of this book, written by Michael Dawson, takes the programmers on a journey of game programming. An amateur programmer having no previous experience in game development can also learn new skills and concepts with the help of simple language and step-by-step instructions provided in this book.

The programmers can learn the following things with the help of this book:

  • The Standard Template Library (Hangman)
  • Types, Variables, and Standard I/O: Lost Fortune For Loops, Strings, and Arrays: Word Jumble
  • Functions (Mad Lib)
  • References (Tic-Tac-Toe)
  • Classes: Critter Caretaker Advanced Classes and Dynamic Memory Game Lobby
  • Pointers (Tic-Tac-Toe 2.0)
  • Inheritance and Polymorphism (Blackjack)
