> What would you recommend as a good book for learning current C++?

I have (only) 3 C++ books in my library:
I'd recommend Meyers', but you should wait for suggestions from
somebody that read dozens of books on the subject.
If you are like me, you prefer to buy in a local store and not online.
I surely bought Meyers locally (I think at BordersBookstore, but not
100% sure).

No risk on that side if you look at my stuff.
At most you might get confused and buy a book on diapers, potty
training (*) and the likes :-)

(*) actually very successful, I strongly recommend that book if any of
you is in that phase of parenting
