    I thought that you are generous more than 2 winners/300 comments.

    I’m disappointed

    • mkyong

      Sorry, it’s the book publisher (packtpub) decided to give away ONLY 2 books for free, I’m just the “deliver”.

      • Abdennour

        Mkyong, I’m so sorry . I love Java World and I don’t imagine that I’ve lost . so, I said the words above under a state of shock.
        Really, I’m sorry.

  • Abdennour

    It’s not me who is in need off this book but the entire human kind !
    let me explain it to all of you, I’m a developer whether during office hours or spare time, especially during long winter nights, my special skill … Ohh ! I’m a bug exterminator, not the ones you found in old 5 time century house ceiling but the one coming from another planet and because there’s too much of’em I have to build a robust concurrent solution to exterminate’em all.

    Also, I need this book because I’m a book hunter, but this is another story ..

    • Abdennour

      I’ve applied multi-threading in several Swing applications I have created, one of them a research project, the job gets done but not as good as I expected. When I used concurrency in my RCP application to load several large XML files concurrently, the result was that the application consumed too much of system resources.

      I guess I might be doing something wrongly, so I would like a chance like this to get a good book on concurrency to help me understand the subject better and improve the quality of my work.

  • Khanh

    It’s so great. I want to explore it.

  • Victor Rosenberg

    I love Java and really like this blog. The product I work on would really benefit concurrency-wise if this book will show me a new trick or two.

  • Moshe

    I need this book because I’m learning java, and I’m at the stage where I want to master concurrency. I’m a developer from Israel, and I really love this website, by the way ;-)

  • srikanth

    lets be strong in threads….

  • vipin

    I am a java beginner & PRACTICE on Core Java I would love to have this book to increase my java skills which is very important and the main point is that this can be suggest by MKYOUNG.

  • Anshul

    Need it for increasing my threading skills

  • Pankaj

    I am a java developer working on Core Java and J2EE projects, I would love to have this book to increase my java threading skills.

  • Quoc Trinh

    Concurrence is one of the most important topic if we want to be a master developer. I’m a java software engineer, and I’m willing to learn more about java.

  • Ashinkc

    i like to learn java and for concurrency control ill have to learn more advance tecnology

  • Muhammad Yousaf

    I recently faced this challenge of concurrency and I am looking forward to some good book to develop better understanding of it.

  • David Sachdev

    I’m a big fan of Concurrency in Practice, and I always say that it is a great book – but you can only digest a chapter or so at a time. The topic is heavy, but also one that every good developer needs to understand thoroughly. I’m interested in the Java 7 Concurrency Cookbook because both Java 6 and & have brought in technology to make concurrency easier – and also the best way to truly learn is by coding, and I hope that the cookbook will help me on that path!


  • Robert

    I’d like to learn it,Thanks.

  • Rajkiran

    Mkyong’s book review is prompting me for this interesting journey and is giving a feel that it will be a great java read.

  • Tareque Md Khan

    Any material by mkyong is fit for easy understanding for the beginner and at the same time serves as a reference for experts. And this is a complete book, that means there is a lot of explanation with a lot of practical examples, which makes a must source of knowledge to posses.

  • Abhay Pore

    i need this to learn more java ;)
