    Best Book on C++ For Absolute Beginners?

    I have no programming experience. I want to learn c++ from books only, not from any online tutorials. Which are the best books on c++ for absolute beginners, Other Than Primer Plus Plus & book by Kroenig & book by Bjarne Stroustrope? The book must teach in a very simple childish language.

    You don't say why you want to learn c++. If it is for grame programming, then I would suggest
    Beginning c++ through Game Programing.

    There are also
    Beginning Programming with C++ for Dummies

    Ivor Horton's Beginning Visual c++ 2012 (There's also previous books covering earlier versions of Visual c++)

    c++ from the beginning. Note that this does not cover c++11

    The Deitel series of programming books are also highly regarded by many
    c++ How to Program: Early Objects version

    Note that there are many second hand books available on c++ programming - many of which are very cheap. There was a new c++ standard produced in 2011 (C++11). Books with a publication date before 2012 are unlikely to cover this version. The previous c++ standard (produced in 1998 with an update in 2003) is still very widely used. For learning c++ from scratch, I would not recommend any second hand c++ book published prior to about 2005 - however cheap!
