Book Overview

Many Windows developers still write code as if their application is a single entity that, while it is running, has complete control of all system resources. This legacy from the days of DOS means that... This description may be from another edition of this product.

Win32 Multithreaded Programming Review

Good overview for how most operating systems work. In depth implementation overview for the different type of kernel objects that can be used via Win32 API to sync your windows threads. Good examples of syncing situations.

A very good book on multithreading

I have not seen a better book on multithreading than this one...

This one is a Keeper

Here's what I liked about the book: (1) It provides simple explanation of central concepts and issues around multithreaded programming. This knowledge is platform independent. (2) Provides clear explanation of Win32 specific API and Kernel Objects, knowledge that is necessary to do Multithreaded Programming on most Microsoft Platforms. (3) Builds a simple C++ based OO Wrapper class Library for Multithreaded programming that elegantly conceals Win32 APIs idiosyncrasies. (4) Also builds additional higher Level OO Abstractions (like Monitors) that Win32 does not need to support directly but Programmers need often. (5) Great illustrations of Multithreading problems, solutions and Patterns through the trailing part of the book. (6) Code and Diagrams abound. What's there not to like?

Very useful class libraries included in this book...

This is one of the best books I've ever read. Before reading this book, I didn't have experience of multithreaded programming in Windows NT. The class libraries inside give me a good paradigm on how to write safe multithreading codes, and help me to finish the software development at my job as soon as possible. I honestly appreciate that the authors made their efforts to write this excellent book.

A must have for your library

One of the best book on programming I have ever read. The book expands your brain to think in parallel. The included class libraries (C++) are excellent building blocks and I use them all the time in my own projects.The debugging and exception advice is spot on.Although the book never mentions WinSock-2 anywhere, it gives you a full understanding of kernel event objects necessary to impliment event-based socket code.... Should you feel the need to as I did.Beginners to C++, should learn C++ first before buying this book.
