This is one of the best computing books I have read. Very readable and covers everything from explaining threads to advanced thread programming. The examples are just right: small enough to read quickly, big enough to be useful. You only need one book on threads and this is it.

As good as this book is, the Kindle edition shows that no-one bother to check it was ok before releasing it. I constantly find myself flicking over multiple pages as an bit of introductory text to a chapter is presented vertically, so a single sentance runs over multiple pages. Formatting is all over the place. Would score more highly if it was easier to read. The hardcopy version doesnt have these issues, so scores higher.

If the author ever revises the book, it would be nice to see a chapter on migrating code from draft 4 (CMA) threads to pthreads. Other than that, this really is the definitive guide to the subject.
