Josuttis, Nicolai M.  The C++ Standard Library : A Tutorial and Reference
   Probably the best C++ book I've ever seen.  A lot of books either
   have a good tutorial or good reference but not both.  This one
   does an excellent job with both.

If you're doing non-computer books I'd suggest Cryptonomicon.

Cheers,
