Parallel Programming is an increasingly hot topic in today’s IT circles. For those who ponder why I can tell in short it is because of the CPU clock speeds stagnation. We, software engineers, are dealing with ever increasing volumes of data and are asked to deliver even faster, more robust applications and websites. This is tough. Parallel Programming is the answer. I hope I whet your appetite for exploring the Parallel Programming so now I can switch the focus to the book.

Дуже, дуже погано. Якщо прочитав доки, то усе в книжці зрозуміло, але нащо тоді книга, якщо доки не читав, то нічого не зрозуміло.
