I'm wondering with many changes in Java concurrency since this book written (e.g. CompletableFuture and project Loom) is the book still relevant to read in 2020?

Yes, it is. You can look up some of the newer features in books like Modern Java in Action (Urma Fusco and Mycroft, Manning (?)2015). You would probably do better not to read the earlier editions called Java8/9 in Action.
Moving to our general books forum.
