Comments about oreilly Professional C++, 2nd Edition:

The book is excellent, as others have commented - I give the book 4.5 stars.

But O'Reilly's epub release is terrible: The code printed in place is incorrectly formatted making it very difficult to read, the links in the book to code images don't work, and although an index exists in the printed version of this book it is NOT THERE in O'Reilly's epub version.
