Depending on background I'd recommend starting with "The C Programming
Language". C is a much, much easier language to learn the C++, and
familiarity with it will help a lot in learning C++. Next would be a
good book on the STL and one that on OO programming that uses C++ as
the example language. Sorry, no good recommendations there. Too long
ago :)

Finally, every C++ programmer should read "Essential C++" and "More
Essential C++", by Meyers. Not only will it help you avoid nasty,
obscure bugs, it will also give insight into some of the more subtle
language design issues that you should be aware of.
