Excellent overview and introduction
am 28. April 1998
I found this to be a wunnerful book given that I wasn't very experienced using STL when I read it. It provided the necessary hooks for me to make better sense out of the two extremes on the continuum (see two references below). The reference section could be arranged more usefully, but this is a minor carp. I highly recommend this one for folks trying to get their minds around STL. This is an accessible cover-to-cover read.
Gotta qualify the numerical rating. I consider this a 10 for the non-expert STL audience trying to understand STL. Probably more of a 6 for experienced users who are more interested in reference manuals.
I find that as I get more and more familiar with STL, I look more and more frequently at the two books below. However, these books are now vastly more useful after reading "the STL Tutorial and Reference Guide".
"The STL <Primer>" by Glass and Schuchert. Excellent brief synopsis of the interfaces, not much supporting detail but very handy. I reach for this one first when I want to use something in STL. If I need more details, I look in...
"C++ Programmer's guide to the Standard Template Library" by Mark Nelson, very detailed in its treatment of most *all* of the parts of STL. Thick, but something that provides all the details has to be.
