#189370 - target requirement?
Responding to: Erik Malund's previous message
As you mentioned "Desktop Book", did you mean MS-Window's Desktop Only? (I don't know whats good, I am with Unix mainly. )

If not, and if its purely about languages fluency, and code which would work on any environment (windows/linux/mac), a copy of Effective C++ by Scott Meyers, will be very helpful to you. So that you write code that don't result in memory-leaks, etc.
Accelerated C++ ( http://www.amazon.com/dp/020170353X/ ), is the fastest way to get going.

Also there is QT, which is again cross-platform, and good for Desktop-UI, but you really don't need a book on QT. They're got great tutorials (http://doc.qt.digia.com/4.7/tutorials.html ) and examples ( http://doc.qt.digia.com/4.7/all-examples.html ). Note to mention a ridiculously great API ( http://doc.qt.digia.com/4.7/classes.html ).
