C++ Coding Standards: 101 Rules, Guidelines, and Best Practices
C++ Coding Standards: 101 Rules, Guidelines, and Best Practices
Herb Sutter and Andrei Alexandrescu, 2004
The authors cover virtually every facet of C++ programming. Each standard is described concisely, with practical examples.
Note that this book uses the word "standards" where most others use "style."
"This is the only coding standard I've ever seen that would really help a group of programmers improve their work."
"If you don't have this book, and you are a serious C++ developer, you need it."
"Awesome read for developers of any language"

The early nineties were big for C++ style books.

C++ Programming Style
C++ Programming Style
Tom Cargill, 1992
The scope of C++ programming style goes beyond traditional in-the-small issues which relate to the details of line-by-line coding. This book examines the use of the in-the-large language features of C++, which sometimes confuse even experienced programmers.
" It is written for the programmer who has learned the mechanics of C++, but is experiencing difficulty in applying the language features - particularly the object-oriented features - to programming problems."
Advanced C++ Programming Styles and Idioms
Advanced C++ Programming Styles and Idioms
James O. Coplien, 1991
Assuming a background in C++ basics, this book helps programmers to develop their programming expertise by giving a feel for the styles and idioms of the language. The approach is organized around the abstractions that C++ supports.
"A very good book that all c++ programmers should have."
