|The C++ Standard Library: My Favourite Quotes
Here is my favourite quote about The C++ Standard Library, found at amazon.com:
1 of 3 Books That Must Be On My Desk At All Times!
I have hundreds of software related books. This is one of only 3 that must be on my desk at all times, one that I refuse to lend out. It is an excellent book, by far the best I have found on the topic. It is amazingly thorough and well organized. I don't believe that I have ever run across an STL related question the answer to which cannot be quickly located in this book. I use it often and would feel "naked" without it.
I bought mine when it came out in 1999. Despite the fact that the binding appears to be of good physical quality, mine is coming apart now. I presume that is indicative of the constant use this book has sustained over the past 7 years on my desk!
