First of all, this is a Cookbook and as such its main purpose is to serve as reference for specific usages and future needs. I wouldn't recommend reading it straight through, just use it for consulting specific things you need to do. If you do read it from start to finish though i will tell that the first few chapters introduce you to the basics of threading (which hasn't changed much since C# 2.0 as far as i know) and the complexity of the code scales in a very nice pace.All recipes follow the format of first “Getting ready” then “How to do it…” and finally “How it works…” The thing i liked the most is the “How it works…” sections since most Cookbooks don't contain a very deep explanation on how the code works but this one is less shallow than most. I won't say it explains in excruciating details every single part of the code but at least it does transmit the idea behind every code snippet well enough so you can come up with your own variations.If you are taking a degree in computer sciences or if you work with C# in a regular basis i would totally recommend to get this book into your library so you can have it for future references.
This is a great book to learn multithreading while practicing with the code. Each section has an example that you can use to help you learn, but I think it would have been an awesome book if the author describes the topics as well as explaining the code.For example, in section for CountDownEvent, we have code example on how to use the CountDownEvent, but there's no information about what it is and when to use it.
All main topics are covered. There are some very cool tricks like awaiting a dynamic object and windows 8 background tasks.
