"If you aim to be a professional C++ developer, this book is a must-have. It provides the most up-to-date coverage of the effective use of C++11 and C++14 I have read. Moreover, this book is not to be read just once and then tossed away. Indeed, I am looking forward to read it again because it contains so much wisdom."

"C++ changed and I decided it was worthwhile to learn these changes, read about best practices and evolve my knowledge structures related to these languages and tangential materials. Without Scott Meyers book, I faced many months of trial and error without an effective guide. Thankfully, due to his experience, I can broaden my insight to make better choices and follow a much better process of analysis when applying the newer versions of C++."

"This book is really effective; it explains the motivations behind the new features and helps you understand the whole picture about the new standards. Beginner or even expert C++ developers will find it very useful."
