    What's wrong with these?:

    - C++: The Core Language by Gregory Satir and Doug Brown

    - https://github.com/QuantumLeaps/OOP-in-C

    - C++ Concurrency in Action

    - C++ Templates the Complete Guide 2e

    The first is particularly geared towards C programmers, and I prefer the second one to "Inside the C++ Object Model". (There's also another popular book by a German author who covers OOP in C.)

    For the time being, I will be an "opportunist" who is waiting for the right time to switch to another language[1] - Rust:

    "To me using C++ means you are ready to give up a lot of time and energy in order to gain a complete control over certain aspects of your program. I was very much into that at the start of my career and gradually started drifting away to more immediate productivity while reserving the right to poke under the hood when necessary. This has led me to Rust and I find it to be the better natively compiled strongly & statically typed language, but YMMV of course."

    (No, the concepts I learn in C++11 and beyond won't go into waste even when C++ becomes less and less relevant in a couple of decades.)
