The text however could be a little more concise in places, and the examples given are (obviously) only for STD C++11 compilers - which are available for Linux/Unix without a hitch, but currently Microsoft only have a smattering of features supported in their compiler. This is not the books fault, the fault of the book is not to point this out, not to help the reader perhaps find a suitable runtime environment in which to run the examples in the books.
Is gcc -std=c++0x sufficient?.... Will Visual Studio 2012 eventually have more support for the STD threading?... I think the book should have introduced the reader to this, I know its nit picking, but the author of the book is also the author of the boost threading library, boost are notorious for not really documenting their work, leaving the window open for books such as this very one to document how to do things. The new std threading standard is, for the most part, based on the boost threading model and the author make hooting mention of this, but does not start off with the most basic level - where and what to compile the examples with.
Don't let this detract from the book itself, its content is very good, just doubly so if you work out how/where to compile the examples given.
2. Complete C++ 11 threading model from one of the standard creators.
3. Very well written book.
