I think this might be well traveled ground now, but people always ask me what I'd recommend to learn good C++ style.

http://www.amazon.ca/The-Design-Evolution-Bjarne-Stroustrup/...

and

http://www.amazon.ca/Modern-Design-Generic-Programming-Patte...

are my two favorite books. And then if you aren't happy with these books this stackoverflow link has more books than you could ever want:

This link from Microsoft is also pretty darn good:

I really liked The Design and Evolution of C++. Stroustrup has a very nice writing style, and I think it is worth reading whether one likes (or even knows) C++ or not. (My own knowledge of C++ is rather superficial, in case it matters).

As an account of how a programming language evolves over time with the changing - and often contradictory - needs of its users, it was very interesting.
