"Herb Sutter has consolidated the C++ FAQ (formerly maintained by Bjarne and others in various places). The FAQ has also been restructured and now available at the official ISO-C++ homepage: http://isocpp.org/faq."

tkd-physics elaborates:

"The Standard C++ Foundation has put together a new 'unified' C++ FAQ, combining Marshall Cline's popular FAQ, Bjarne Stroustrup's FAQ pages, and many other sources. Check out http://isocpp.org/blog/2014/03/faq for the announcement. [Note I've already found a few places where the integration of all these sources is less than perfect. I suspect it will be a little while before all the necessary editing is complete. They are accepting both suggestions and volunteers.]"

    About seventeen years ago when I first learned C++, I was frustrated that the two introductory books I have bought on the subject were rather terrible. I then chanced upon Marshall Cline's FAQ in the form of book, which I bought largely because it was very inexpensive. However, it turned out to be the best book I had found to learn C++ at that time. It provided a surprisingly good explanation of when and why you use certain C++ features, which I found very helpful as a beginner.

    I'm sure there are many good C++ books available now, but I've always been a fan of the Cline FAQ as an unexpectedly good introduction to C++. Perhaps the new FAQ referenced in TFS is also good, but I suspect it has grown to a point where it may be more useful specifically as a FAQ than as an introduction to the language.
