The STL and the template feature of C++ gives the programmer some of
the functionality of Python (using templates instead of duck typing,
vectors instead of lists etc.), so a book that introduces these
features early, such as "Accelerated C++" by Koenig and Moo, could be a
good start for a Pythonner. The 4th edition of the well-known "C++
Primer", with Moo as a new co-author, will soon be published. It is a
more comprehensive and much longer book.
