Hi I would like to purchase a book on Concurrency and Synchronization with good concepts. I am fairly good at core java.
I would like to go deep and understand threading in the minutest details possible. Any book that solves my problem?
Any suggestions on intermediate to advanced books are welcome.

I second that; it's a great book.

There's also Java Threads by Scott Oaks and Henry Wong, which has the benefit of one of the authors hanging out here in this very forum answering questions

I've read the book by Oak and Wong and didn't like it.

If you looking to become a guru in the multi-threading area read the bible
Doug Lea Concurrent Programming in Java.

Concurrent Programming in Java predates Java 5, which made major changes and additions to Java in this area, so I wouldn't recommend it now.

Note that Doug Lea is one of the authors of Java Concurrency in Practice, so I'd take that as an endorsement by him that that book is now to be preferred. :-)
