Learning Object Oriented programming is like moving to another culture. When one meets a new culture, it's hard to know what's important, and what can be skipped. Our aim is to get you writing Object Oriented C++ right away, so you avoid getting bogged down in details that are irrelevant to an introduction. Target audience: engineers, scientists, researchers, & students who need to write powerful programs of any size; it is a text aimed at the casual programmer. The only two prerequisites necessary to obtain value from this book are: A desire to finally learn C++, and a little familiarity with computer programming.

From the Author:

Originating in the need of C++ beginners to avoid getting stuck in the language syntax, this text explains the major new ideas C++ introduces, making it not only possible, but comfortable to move to C++ from Fortran, C, Pascal, or Basic. The text is arranged to be read straight through, testing the examples with your compiler. The ideas take a while to assimilate, so it'll take more than "21 days" to become a C++ expert. I added the appendix after finding that most engineering and scientific programmers need a handle on C++ Matrices, and dynamic storage management.
