That is where "Introduction to the Boost C++ Libraries" series really helps. With explanations when a particular library might help, and reasonable examples for illustration, for the most part each chapter tackles a different library. For example, this book examines the Network library, explaining TCP/IP and UDP and other internet protocols. But more importantly, the chapter progresses from simple examples to ones of increasing complexity, showing how to make the method calls work right.

With the emergence of the Boost Libraries (boost. org) we see that C++ is brought to a new level, namely a set of reusable and modular template libraries that C++ developers can use in their applications.

Most Boost libraries are header based, consisting of inline functions and templates, and as such do not need to be built in advance of their use. Some Boost libraries coexist as independent libraries. The original founders of Boost still active in the community include Beman Dawes and David Abrahams.

This book is the follow-up of the Boost Volume I book and it has been written for software developers who use Boost C++ libraries to create flexible applications. We discuss approximately 20 advanced libraries that can be classified into the following major categories:Mathematics: special functions, statistical distributions, interval arithmetic and matrix algebra.Special data structures: date and time, circular buffer, UUID, dynamic bitsets, pool memory.TCP and UDP portable network programming using the software interface.Interprocess communication and shared memory programming models.Three chapters on graphs, graph algorithms and their implementation in Boost.The focus is hands-on and each library is discussed in detail and numerous working examples are given to get the reader up to speed as soon as possible. Each library is described in a step-by-step fashion and you can use the corresponding code as a basis for more advanced applications.These libraries are the ideal basis for new applications. We shall use them in Volume III of the current series when we discuss applications to engineering, science and computational finance.Chapters:The Boost C++ Libraries OverviewMath Toolkit: Special FunctionsMath Toolkit: Orthogonal FunctionsDate and TimeSome Building Block Data Structures and LibrariesMatrix Algebra in Boost Part I: uBLAS Data StructuresMatrix Algebra in Boost Part II: Advanced Features and ApplicationsAn Introduction to Networking Programming Concepts and ProtocolsBoost ASIO: Synchronous OperationsBoost ASIO: Asynchronous OperationsBoost Interprocess: IPC MechanismsBoost Interprocess: Process SynchronisationInterval ArithmeticUser-defined Memory Allocation: Boost PoolAn Introduction to Graph Theory and Graph AlgorithmsThe Boost Graph Library (BGL) Data Structures and Fundamental AlgorithmsThe Boost Graph Library (BGL) Advanced AlgorithmsInterval Container LibraryBoost Functional Factory

This is a wonderful reference book for some of the more advanced libraries from the Boost organization. The Boost library is a free, open source, general purpose library testbed for new C++ features: just go to boost.org to get the whole story. Boost is very large and covers a wide range of functionality -- from "Accumulators" (an incremental calculation framework) to "Xpressions" (a REGEX library) with many patterns and functions in between.

I have not read "Volume II Advanced Libraries" from cover to cover -- I do not have a current need to deploy or even understand all of the covered topics at this time. However, the topics that do interest me are well explained in the pages of this book. Boost is a cross-platform set of C++ libraries with pretty decent documentation on the web, but often the web documents explains "how" to use the features at the expense of "why", or lacks details of a larger coding context. That is where "Introduction to the Boost C++ Libraries" series really helps. With explanations when a particular library might help, and reasonable examples for illustration, for the most part each chapter tackles a different library. For example, this book examines the Network library, explaining TCP/IP and UDP and other internet protocols. But more importantly, the chapter progresses from simple examples to ones of increasing complexity, showing how to make the method calls work right. Often, knowing which calls (and their parameters) are necessary for your objective and ignoring the rest is the main obstacle to getting code working. Sadly, searching the documentation at the boost site can be frustrating (or fruitless). Again, this book (well, book series) truly helps in this regard.

In addition, I appreciate how the authors tie in Boost libraries with well-known software patterns (with numerous references to "GoF", the bible of design patterns). The authors even explain where Boost improves on the patterns described in "Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software" by Gamma, Helm, Johnson and Vlissides (the "Gang of Four", AKA "GoF").

I have one complaint about this otherwise excellent book: Boost has *many* header files and numerous LIB or DLL files. This book sometimes fails to list which header files are required for the method calls employed in the sample code. Same with the compiled Boost libraries. Perhaps the compiler you use for your projects will tell you which LIB or DLL is missing, but finding the correct header file by using some grep-like utility is time-consuming!

To sum up this review, if you plan on writing cross-platform code or just want to use any of the tremendous features found in the Boost library, do yourself a favor and buy both volumes of this series: Introduction to the Boost C++ Libraries; Volume I - Foundations and this current book. You may save time digging for the exact information you think you need in the documentation, and then wondering why it does not work in your code.

I've not read through all of the book since a large part of the libraries in this book are math libraries. I bought it for th ASIO library and that alone was worth it for me. Explanation and examples were easy to read and follow, and also very practical. You can't google the info provided in this book nor don't waste your time. The book is well worth it for me.

These excellent libraries become more accessible with this background material.

Overall, I would like to give a 4.5 start. Over time, I do not found boost.org being very helpful. This book gives a lot of examples and descriptions about the libraries. The book help you to have a big picture of boost to get started.
