Looks like I'm not the only one that gets those books confused :). When 
"Exceptional C++" was mentioned, I thought it was that C++ book you wrote.

I think I breifly browsed through one or two of those "E* C++" books before. 
Was very impressed with them (and also a similar book from a different 
publisher geared towards game dev), but I think my biggest take-away from 
all of them was, "Alright, that's it, screw C++." ;) Then I found D. Not 
that the books were difficult or anything, in fact they did a great job of 
making an extremely complicated language as easy as possible. But they just 
made it finally click in my mind just what a PITA/POS C++ had become. Shit, 
I'm rambling again... ;)
