    Summary Of The Book

    Effective C++: 55 Specific Ways To Improve Your Programs And Designs shows the readers many ways they can improve their software design and code while writing programs in C++. The author has divided and grouped the techniques he discusses under nine chapter headings. The first chapter, Accustoming Yourself to C++ looks at some fundamental concepts that will help the readers begin good designing and coding practices.

    It introduces C++ as part of a Federation of Languages. It then shows how using const, inline and enum are better than using #define. The section also provides other vital tips, for instance, to see that objects are initialized before use. The second chapter focuses on Constructors, Destructors and Assignment Operators. It provides many useful tips like having assignment operators return a reference to, preventing exceptions from leaving destructors, and handling assignment to self in operators.

    The third chapter provides useful tips on Resource Management. The next chapter covers Designs and Declarations. This section contains eight techniques, focusing on declarations and design. The next section focuses on Implementations. This explains six techniques and tips. These include an advice to define variables only when needed, minimizing compilation dependencies between files and creating exception-safe code. The book then discusses techniques that can improve Inheritance and Object Oriented design. This section provides nine tips. This includes stressing the need to differentiate between inheritance of interface and inheritance of implementation. The author also advises minimizing the use of multiple inheritance and private inheritance.

    The seventh chapter explains techniques for Templates and Generic Programming. This section explains how to access names in template based classes. It also discusses compile time polymorphisms and implicit interfaces. There are a total of eight tips in this chapter. The next chapter looks at Customizing new and delete operators. This section explains the need to understand when it makes sense to replace the default new and delete handlers.

    The last chapter provides tips for some miscellaneous topics. Here, the need to pay attention to compiler warnings is emphasized. Then the author asks the readers to familiarize themselves with the standard library and Boost. Effective C++: 55 Specific Ways To Improve Your Programs And Designs uses TR1 library functionalities and there are also comparisons to the standard library features. The book also discusses the difference between the the group of languages related to C++ like Java, C, and C#. It provides a total of 55 techniques to help improve the design and coding of the different components of a C++ programs.

    This book rocks !!!

    This is a book everybody should own in order to take oneself to the next level in C++. Before you buy this, make sure you are thorough with the basics of C++. This book is not for beginners. This book is mostly giving you cautions before you use any feature of C++ programming. Meyers explains the right way to do the day-to-day coding any developer does. While reading most of the sections you will feel like "why the hell this didn't strike my mind before". This book also might help in intervie...

    definitely book content is very good, Most of the interviewer refers this book, publisher Pearson any book you will buy from flipkart quality of book is very very poor. Price could be good in compare to other publisher but while reading I am sure people looks for good quality pages. Here in case of Pearson all pages are very very dull

    Superb book for everything.

    This is the superb book that is not written to teach us C++ or how to program. It is considered as the guide lines for an experienced programmer for writing effective code. The contents in this book are included topic wise to include everything for that topic.
    You can also consider it as a one of the milestone in your C++ programming experience.
    NOTE:- I want to share that if you are preparing for any job change then this is the one book you should read, also more effective.
