Top 10 C++ Books Beginner & Advanced

So, a lot of you guys requested a Top 10 C++ Books and well… There you have it!

Lately, I've been doing a lot of different Top Books on my channel. I figured it is an awesome way of providing a good way to start for those who want to learn new programming languages or even for those people that want to study more about a specific language.

So, in this video, I'll give you my Top 10 C++ Books. This will be an awesome resource for those who want to learn C++, especially nowadays if a lot of information overload. Having focus and knowing where you want to go will definitely make a big difference on how fast you'll learn C++

If you don't know, C++ is one of the most popular programming languages nowadays. It is a robust language and here are only a few of its pros:

  • Is extremely popular, and therefore lots of support is available.
  • Has a large base of freely available code for download, while also supporting direct integration with ASM and C.
  • Is very powerful, and can be used to create just about any program, including low-level system programs.
  • There is a compiler for C++ on every major operating system. C++ programs that are purposely written for portability will work on many major operating systems with little change in code.
  • C++ is a language that is compiled (transformed from human-readable code to low-level machine code), so it can often run faster than languages such as Java, Python, and C#; as it does not depend on an interpreter or a “run-time environment” which must be loaded beforehand.
  • Has a long-established usage base that likely guarantees support for the language will continue for quite some time.
  • Many languages are based on C/C++, such as Java, so knowledge in C++ will make it easier to understand these languages.
  • Has a relatively small associated C++ Standard Library as compared to languages such as Java's Standard Platform SDK or C#'s .NET Framework, permitting greater versatility and reducing the system footprint of resulting compilations.
  • Has been standardized by the International Standards Association as ISO/IEC 14882 with significant versions of the standard released in 1998, 2003, and 2011.
  • Has a significant number of open source libraries available, including the Boost which is freely and widely available.
