4-d edition is definitely better but the second (available on the Internet for free) is not bad.
What make this book attractive for me is that the author is trying to teach you programming, not just a language.
All-in-all very readable up-to-date book by a very gifted educator with good advice and a nice set of examples, summaries, do's & don'ts, and quiz questions with solutions. Important little tips and warnings are scattered throughout the chapters. Classes are given a solid coverage in this book, and the author explains this topic well (may be constructors deserve a little bit more elaborate coverage).
my reason for purchasing the book is the following: When I went on interviews lately, I realized that my experience was more C then C , and I had no UML or template (stl) knowledge. I purchased this book fully expecting to return it, but will not (it's an inexpensive great book).
I am almost ashamed to admit, I quickly purused most chapters but took three pages of notes, of things I did not fully know.

Our Word of the Year choice serves as a symbol of each year’s most meaningful events and lookup trends.
It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year.
There are typos and errors in the code as in any C book, however identifying and correcting them is a very educational experience so I would not object about them too much.
