Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Whilst writing parallel and asynchronous code has become easier than ever since .NET 4.0 and 4.5, it can still be perplexing and full of pitfalls. Stephen Cleary has written an excellent cookbook covering many scenarios of usage of asynchronous code using async/await and the TAP, and parallel code using the TPL, Dataflow & PLINQ, as well as Rx. Not necessarily a beginner's guide by any means, but an indispensable aid once having progressed beyong some of the basics.

It's also worth reading the author's blog on concurrency, probably the best communicator on the subject around.

Useful, but felt it was mostly a user guide to his nuget package

Techy books are generally quite dry, but I've enjoyed reading this one. It tackles a thorny topic very well. Highly recommended.

Great read! 21 July 2014
By George - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Takes a very high level approach to concurrent programming: deals in TPL and PLINQ instead of threading basics. I think it's a great approach more suited to modern development practices. I would rate this as Expert level literature - requires a reasonable understanding of C#, CLI code execution, design patterns and a thorough understanding of threading basics .

Tip #1 - "As soon as you type new Thread(), it’s over; your project already has legacy code"

Great coverage of Async/Await and Tasks. Recommanded for intermediate/advanced programmers. Show common pitfalls to avoid. 10 Aug. 2014
By CubeRoot - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Four stars because I found several minor errors/typos and although it's fairly easy to read it's not as exciting as I would have hoped. If your looking to improve your coding then this book is a must read. It warns you of deprecated coding methods and show you the right way to get the job done. I recommend it for an intermediate to advanced developer. It definitely shouldn't be your first book but it should be on your list of reads. It covers the new Async / Await method and Tasks. There are some special conditions that I found interesting and I expect will keep me from making bad assumptions. Some of the material in this book is duplicated in other books but there's definitely some great content. This book is on my must read list.

Well written and accessible 30 Jun. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have read the parts I needed (on asynchronous programming). I find the writing style and presentations very good, and the coverage to be very complete. I have been mostly disappointed with other technology books. This one stands out and delivers.

The author's website is also really chock-full of good stuff.

He touches a bit on RX (another very cool framework), but in a huge surprise to me ... 17 Mar. 2015
By John Peters - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've seen Stephen's posts around many different forums in the past 10 years and can testify he has a profound knowledge in this area of Asynchronous programming. He touches a bit on RX (another very cool framework), but in a huge surprise to me he introduced me to the Asynchronous Block support (I had no idea it existed). If you read and understand this book you will be your company's .NET Async expert. You will not however be an RX expert...

Hint: Stephen.... write an RX book please!

Very good overview 12 Sept. 2014
By P.H. Merkel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I like the reflection on usability and real world.
I think some more of those hints as code and/or guidelines would have done great.
Especially in combination with the different ways to do synchronicity in .Net.
A really good comprehensive work on asynchronous programing in .Net
