I got my copy (the very first copy!) on Friday. At 9am Monday, it became available on the publisher’s site, InformIT, and at 10am it had sold out. This is all very scary for an author. I have worked hard on this for about four years (not counting the 13 years it took getting the C++11 standard out), but of course a 1360-page book is huge, so I’ll find flaws. Anyway, that’s my problem.
For a description of the book, see http://www.stroustrup.com/4th.html. In particular, read the preface and the back-cover text to see if this book might be of interest to you. It aims to be the most comprehensive description of the C++ language, standard library, and the programming techniques C++ is designed to support. It is not meant to be the quickest introduction to C++11 or a first introduction to programming. My TC++PL4 web page also has an extended table of contents, the Tour of C++, and the exercises.
As ever, comments (preferably polite and constructive) and bug reports are most welcome.
