* [Programming Principles and Practice Using C++ 2nd edition](http://www.amazon.com/Programming-Principles-Practice-Using-Edition/dp/0321992784) (C++11/14) is a book for new comers to C++, from basics to more advanced topics it has nice explanations and comes with exercices ([solutions here](https://github.com/bewuethr/stroustrup_ppp)
* [Effective C++: 55 Specific Ways to Improve Your Programs and Designs ](https://www.amazon.fr/Effective-Specific-Improve-Programs-Designs/dp/0321334876) Nice book written by [Scott Meyers](http://scottmeyers.blogspot.fr). Is pre-C++11 but still very useful.

Is for intermediate to advanced C++ programmers.
* [Scientific and Engineering C++: An Introduction with Advanced Techniques and Examples](https://www.amazon.fr/Scientific-Engineering-Introduction-Advanced-Techniques/dp/0201533936) Pre-C++11, very good to learn C++ (for C and Fortran programmers) and presents design techniques.
