Try the "The Art of Computer Programming" by Donald Knuth is at the top of that list. A lot of good books claim to be for a particular languageand really apply to all languages. For example, I've got a book called "C++ Simulations and Cellular Automata" that I haven't gotten into yet. It's from pre-Standard C++, so a little quirky, but you can take any of the ideas and apply it to your favorite language. I did that with "Programming Sudoku", which contains code for VB, but could easily be ported to wxWidgets, gtkmm, etc with C++.
