Don't like the title, never heard of it being recommended by anyone, read the introduction and didn't like their approach.

From what I know, it doesn't assume that you have any previous programming knowledge.. However, as I strongly stressed in the post I linked to, C++ should not be your first programming language as it has a fairly steep learning curve and full of language specific 'traps'.
