Here is the official description for the book:

Essential reading for experienced developers who are determined to master the latest release of C++

Although C++ is often the language of choice from game programming to major commercial software applications, it is also one of the most difficult to master. With this no-nonsense book, you will learn to conquer the latest release of C++. The author deciphers little-known features of C++, shares detailed code examples that you can then plug into your own code, and reveals the significant changes to C++ that accompany the latest release. You’ll discover how to design and build applications that solve real-world problems and then implement the solution using the full capabilities of the language.
