So if I understand the blurb on Amazon correctly, this book ("Murach's C++ 2008") teaches C++/CLI under Visual Studio 2008.
Then why this book title? There is no such thing as "C++ 2008". The official C++0x standard has been delayed far beyond that. In addition, C++/CLI is not C++, and if a book is about C++/CLI, this should be pointed out explicitly. Yes, in the book title.
