Maurice Herlihy: The Art of Multiprocessor Programming

book cover A lot of times I was interested how parallel code works and how organized classic parallel data structures. So I decided to read The Art of Multiprocessor Programming by Maurice Herlihy and I read almost what I wanted to read. The books widely explains locks and other concurrent primitives, parallel data structures and some best practices. Although the book is a bit classbook-like, most parts aren’t boring to read. And as a good thing all chapters contains exercises.

As a drawback, this book contains information mostly only about mutable data structures.
