1. C++ book for C programmers

there are AFAIK not many book which assume already C knowledge.
The reason is simple. C++ is an entirely different beast.
So, most C++ gurus recommend to forget your C habits and
learn C++ as you would learn a new language.
(for example. in C++ there is no need for
 - malloc, free
 - void *
 - char * (at least most of the time)

some of the best books out there are

Thinking in C++ from Bruce Eckel
(also available online: www.bruceeckel.com)

C++ Primer from Stanley Lippman

The C++ Programming Language from Bjarne Stroustrup

go to

there you will find many book reviews from experienced C++

hope I was helpful
