to find a good book!
Nevertheless, Brian Goetz and our Java Concurrency Utilities Expert
Group (JSR-166) made a valiant attempt to beat the curve :-)
Java Concurrency in Practice
I'd be interested to hear your comments.
It looks great. I haven't read it myself yet, but I've had parts of
it waved in front of me by our Java concurrency expert. He suggested
that we should put together a course based upon the book; that would
certainly fit well with our object technology theme (see
I'd also love to read a short, example-filled book about CSP or other
