Some Textbooks that may interest students

The list below contains textbooks that seem to me to be above average textbooks on C and C++. I neither claim that these are the best in their kind, nor that they have any feature that makes them irreplaceable. In addition, I know of errors in all of them (not just typos, and in several cases - conceptual errors), but relatively to other books that I have seen - they are better.
Other good books are not here for one of three reasons:

  1. I have not seen/read them.
  2. I prefer a different order of presentation.
  3. I found nothing special to say about them.
Books that fall into category #1, may enter this list when I have the chance to read them.
