Effective C++: 55 Specific Ways to Improve Your Programs and Designs
Effective C++ 3/e is a complete update of Effective C++ and Effective C++ 2/e .
Like its predecessors, 3/e has 55 guidelines which contain better, more
effective ways to write code, backed by specific examples. The second edition
published in 1997, and was basically a face-lift of the first edition, keeping most
of the same elements, and seven years later is still selling well.
Now, Meyers has dramatically rejuvenated the material, including more than
50% brand-new material. Meyers began this edition by asking himself, "What
are the 55 most important pieces of advice for practicing C++ programmers in
2005?" He also asked thousands of past users of his books this same question.
This resulted in a completely new book. New material includes use of UML
notation, thread safety, exception safety, design patterns, and templates. Any
older material has been revitalized to reflect new ideas and strides in C++

“Every C++ professional needs a copy of Effective C++. It is an absolute must-read for anyone thinking of doing serious C++ development. If you’ve never read Effective C++ and you think you know everything about C++, think again.”
— Steve Schirripa, Software Engineer, Google
“C++ and the C++ community have grown up in the last fifteen years, and the third edition of Effective C++ reflects this. The clear and precise style of the book is evidence of Scott’s deep insight and distinctive ability to impart knowledge.”
— Gerhard Kreuzer, Research and Development Engineer, Siemens AG
The first two editions of Effective C++ were embraced by hundreds of thousands of programmers worldwide. The reason is clear: Scott Meyers’ practical approach to C++ describes the rules of thumb used by the experts — the things they almost always do or almost always avoid doing — to produce clear, correct, efficient code.
The book is organized around 55 specific guidelines, each of which describes a way to write better C++. Each is backed by concrete examples. For this third edition, more than half the content is new, including added chapters on managing resources and using templates. Topics from the second edition have been extensively revised to reflect modern design considerations, including exceptions, design patterns, and multithreading.
Important features of Effective C++ include:
- Expert guidance on the design of effective classes, functions, templates, and inheritance hierarchies.
- Applications of new “TR1” standard library functionality, along with comparisons to existing standard library components.
- Insights into differences between C++ and other languages (e.g., Java, C#, C) that help developers from those languages assimilate “the C++ way” of doing things.
