The canonical concurrency book is Java Concurrency in Practice, Goetz et al.

As far as I know it's still the go-to book regarding Java concurrency, but I could be behind-the-times a bit.

1. There is Java Threads by Henry Wong et al. You can read its review here

2. I agree with David, Java Concurrency in Practice, Goetz et al, is a wonderful book and a lot easy on head(for a topic as easy as threads!) ;) You can read reviews of Java Concurrency in Practice here

3. I have also read a couple of chapters from Concurrent Programming in Java by Doug Lea, you might want to check that too.

What's your BEST learning resource on Java (multi)threading / Concurrency? thread looks to be closed....but its now 5 years since a response to this post. And now I wonder if there are any newer books that cover the basics of threads and also move into more advanced ways to implement concurrency using newer Java releases? Thanks all.....

Welcome to the Ranch

The discussion is not closed, but 5 years ago the question was regarded as having been ansered. Have a look at our book review pages and see whether somebody has posted anything more recent. It may be at a more basic level, but the Java Tutorials is often the most up to date reference to anything.
I agree. Here's the link:
