Can I know if there are any links/books that explain synchronizing threads in simple,deep & detailed manner?

The books that I am using for threads are
The Java Programming Language by Arnold, Gosling and Holmes, Chapter 10
Java Thread Programming by Paul Hyde
I find both of these books easy to read. The first book is the probably the most reliable and accurate book you will find for an intro to Java threads, valuable insights, but only a few examples. The second book has many examples and detailed explanations.
The first thing I read on threads was Core Java Volume II Chapter 1. Cay Horstmann has quite a few interesting and complete examples to show you what threads can do, which will give you an intuitive feeling for threads.
