Opinions on “.NET Concurrency Design Patterns” book by William Stamatakis?

I have been looking for a good book on design patterns in multithreaded programming and came across “.NET Concurrency Design Patterns: Programming in C#”. No user feedback on Amazon so far. Did anyone read it? Any recommendations for other books in this field?

  1. This book does not exist (nor will from the author) according to my sources at AW (Addison Wesley). I was considering taking this project on myself as I was also very interested in it and have been doing quite a bit of research myself in comparing .NET concurrency patterns with Java concurrency patterns.

  2. It is sad. Next question is: what is a good book on Java concurrentcy patterns?

  3. That one is easy, as there a few very good ones:

    1. Concurrent Programming in Java, 2nd Ed., Doug Lea

    2. Concurrent and Real-Time Programming in Java, Andy Wellings

    3. Concurrency: State Models and Java Programs, Jeff Magee and Jeff Kramer

    and one of the classics (C++, Java, C in this case):

    4. Pattern-Oriented Software Architecture, Vol 2.: Patterns for Concurrent and Networked Objects, Doug Schmidt, et. al.
