An excellent book,

This review is from: Parallel Programming in Openmp (Hardcover)
This book is an excellent introduction both to parallel programming in general and OpenMP in particular. It starts with a simple introduction to the most basic elements of OpenMP, and in doing so touches on most of the key new concepts which a beginner will encounter when programming in parallel for the first time.
The later sections of the book explore OpenMP in more detail, introducing both loop-based and region-based parallelism. The final chapter deals with performance-related issues, which is also essential reading for newbies, dispelling some of the naive assumptions one might have when starting out.
