This book is written for professionals who are looking for a no-nonsense presentation of practical
details combined with a deep understanding of C++ subtleties.
This book is written for you if you are looking for practical details of new technologies with a
thorough discussion of their use.

experienced C++ programmer, you will find this book useful and sometimes an eye-opener. If this
is your first programming book (and this is perfectly all right if it is), you will be well rewarded for
