Effective Modern C++ 42 Specific Ways to Improve your Use of C++11 and C++14, Scott Meyers, O’Reilly, 2014
Programmers will like this excellent, practical book. With the new C++ standards, it is much easier to write correct, maintainable C++ programs. The book explains, with colorized code examples, how to make use of the new features such as auto type declarations, move semantics, lambda expressions, and concurrency support.
With a language as complex as C++, one would not be surprised to get a thick weighty tome on this subject, but the book is a reasonable size at 300 pages. Get up to speed with the performance language!
