When I was starting out I used a book called C++ Programming: Program Design Including Data Structures - Second Edition. The author is D.S. Malik. It has been a great help to learn C++ and I still often use to refresh my mind on things I forget. It covers a wide range of C++ concepts so it will take you pretty far into the learning process.

I also believe this book is good too. I have this one and it's pretty simple to get you started. The author is John R. Hubbard....

That question is a somewhat dificult one to answer. Things that can effect the answer would be, your experience level with programming, learning curve you would like to take, somewhat specific areas you would like to focus on(database's etc..) and so on. But to keep it simple. Any book is usefull in some way or another, and anything is better than nothing. me myself i try to get books on anything i can get my hands on.
