C++ can be fairly difficult, it depends on how much programming knowledge you have.
If you've never touched C, the classic reference is The C Programming Language
. It's been 15 years+ since I bought my copy but it's still one of the best programming books ever released. By today's standards it's also one of the thinnest.
The usual references for C++ are from the designer of the language, Bjarne Stroustrup.
They are a demanding (at points, difficult) read - probably best suited to those already quite familiar with the language - not really 'learning' books.
