Hi. Brian Overland here....

1) The book is for absolute beginner up through intermediate, although even advanced programmers should find the sections on new features useful, as well as the 75-page reference section in the back.

Oh, the other question... I'll have to go back and look at your post and respond again...

Oh, answer to #2...

The Standard Template Library (STL) comes with nearly all C++ compilers now (including free ones) and has marvelous capabilities extending C++ way beyond its basic capabilities and the old capabilites of the stanard run-time library inherited mostly from C. My book includes an introduction to some of the most commonly used features of STL.

I don't go into Windows programming or Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFC) used in Msft Visual Studio. But that is what I'd recommend for Windows programming, at least. You'd get all that by buying Microsoft Visual Studio.
I agree. Here's the link:
