These books (phone-book size) are a collection of short papers with code, written by (IMO) pretty high-calibre industry vets (Steve Rabin, etc.). Anyway, google books has the first 40 pages of GPG1, available. Good read, and recommend it (and the subsequent 6 follow-up books) to any programmer or student out there.

Inline vs. Macros, Interfaces, Exporting DLL’s, and more design pattern examples (abstract factory, etc) for game-specific usage.
