How in depth does this book go on the threading features of Java? Most books seem to be either expert level or just skim over the topic altogether which is frustrating given it's importance in the work place.

I have dedicated three chapters on threads with carefully chosen examples. Thanks to Danny (Chief Architect Java SE7) who made me rewrite all the examples from my first submission to bring in more practical and in-context examples. I agree with Rob - if you want an ultimate, authentic, in-depth information on threading "Java Concurrency in Practice" is the book to refer to - you would need lots of patience and concentration while reading it.
