Can someone kindly post links or books for a beginner to dive into learning C++? It is a bit intimidating to approach fresh.

I'd recommend to choose one of these two books:

Programming: Principles and Practice Using C++, 2nd Ed., Bjarne Stroustrup https://www.amazon.com/Programming-Principles-Practice-Using...

C++ Primer, 5th Ed., Stanley Lippman https://www.amazon.com/Primer-5th-Stanley-B-Lippman/dp/03217...

For a very brief introduction:

A Tour of C++, Bjarne Stroustrup https://www.amazon.com/Tour-C-Depth/dp/0321958314/ref=sr_1_1...
