I really loved "Practical C++ Programming" from Steve Oualline when I learned C++ around 5 years ago. At that time I knew nothing about Java, nothing about C, and only very little about object-oriented programming. In college, a group of 12 students including me were working on a C++ project at that time, and we all learned C++ using this book and were extremely happy with it. It is a great introduction to C++ that does not require any prior C knowledge or understanding of OOD. You might want to look at something additional later, but this is a great book to get started with C++. -Mirko
