Fred Schneider has put together a wonderful book on how to do concurrent programming correctly. Whereas the book is ideal for a one-semester course (and more), it is also very valuable as a reference work. It should be read by everyone deeply involved in writing critical programs. Although its focus is strongly on formal methods, I have long claimed that formal methods can be enormously helpful if you are really concerned about correctness in concurrency, for which most unproved algorithms tend to have flaws (and a few ``proved'' ones may also). Furthermore, the implementations of such algorithms are always in question, and formal methods can help significantly there as well.

One of the most valuable things you will gain from this book is realizing just how much work is required to write correct concurrent code of any type.
Highly recommended to the serious readers. If you find semaphores difficult then you are not ready for even the first paragraphs of this book.
