Thank you for your book. I haven't read it yet.

Several recent books on concurrency on the JVM look forward to greater use of dynamically typed languages and functional techniques. Is your book strictly about Java 7? Or does it include any treatment of Java 8 (Project Lambda) or other languages?

Hello Rick

This book is strictly about Java Concurrency API. It doesn't include anything about Java 8 or other languages as Scala or Groovy. I want to test the concurrency features of those languages, but i haven't worked with them yet.

Cool. I think that's probably a Good Thing. There's plenty in Java 7 for you to discuss, and there are plenty of other sources that treat Clojure and the others.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
