I've not done any C++ for years but I take an interest every now and then to see what's going on. Aren't there a few beginner C++ books around that teach "modern C++?" Doesn't Stroustrup have one or is that just a course?

Anyway, I gather Stroustrup himself says you should start with the high-level[^] (not necessarily OO but high-level procedural) and then move to the lower level as required. But many C++ devs disagree with Stroustrup.
