Imperfect C++ by Matthew Wilson

I recently picked up a copy of Imperfect C++ by Matthew Wilson.  Purchasing it was a real pain because Amazon.ca said that it was instock, but then after 4 weeks told me they couldn’t get it anymore.  At that point I found it on Amazon.com, instock and ready to ship.  I asked Amazon.ca about it and they suggested I cancel my order and order it from Amazon.com.  I was not impressed, but 2 weeks later I had the book from Amazon.com.

Summary
This is a book filled with tips and tricks for writing better C++ code.  It specifically sets out to discuss the corners of the C++ language where things get ugly (threading, ABI, design-by-contract, etc) and gives practical suggestions for how best to tackle these tasks.  A particular focus is given to execution efficiency.

I would highly recommend this book for people who have a few years of C++ experience and would like to take their understanding to the next level.  This book is a very informative read and works well as reference material.  I would give this book 5 out of 5 because it stays focused on the material, is organized well (great for reference), and is written well.
