Best selling author Bruce Eckel has joined forces with Chuck Allison to write Thinking in C++, Volume 2, the sequel to the highly received and best selling Thinking in C++, Volume 1. Eckel is the master of teaching professional programmers how to quickly learn cutting edge topics in C++ that are glossed over in other C++ books. In Thinking in C++, Volume 2, the authors cover the finer points of exception handling, defensive programming and string and stream processing that every C++ programmer needs to know. Special attention is given to generic programming where the authors reveal little known techniques for effectively using the Standard Template Library. In addition, Eckel and Allison demonstrate how to apply RTTI, design patterns and concurrent programming techniques to improve the quality of industrial strength C++ applications. This book is targeted at programmers of all levels of experience who want to master C++.
