The four stars are because this is a great book on the Intel Parallel Studio and how to utilize the tools in your workflow.

As a book to learn Parallel Programming; it is lacking. Considering the target audience is experienced programmers, I expected better coverage of both design and implementation considerations related to parallel programming. Everything is addressed from an application and algorithm level and completely ignores any coverage of system issues. ( IPC and Shared Memory are only covered at a superficial level ).

So if you are going to use this as a tutorial on parallel programming alone, it is seriously lacking. You will not understand enough to know you have serious gaps in your learning. That is probably my biggest issue.

As a book on the Intel Parallel Studio, this book is well worth the price. This has some great labs and walks you through the tools and various parallel technologies provided with the Intel suite. The Intel documentation is hard to navigate and this book is a great jumping off point. The author's provide code to test in the tools with bugs so you will understand the how and the why.

This is the first printing, so there are alot of editing issues.

That's basically it - the book is geared towards a Windows user and tries very hard to make sure the GUI is properly explained. The command line is not given as good a treatment. The book serves as a reasonably good introduction, but is just not in-depth enough to be exceptionally useful.

Well, I am using the free version of IPS in Ubuntu Linux. I found some examples that use windows.h and mm????.h which are libraries that apply only to Windows. I wish the author could make available versions of these examples that do not use those windows libraries so they could easlily run in Linux.

Intel Studio with a practical manner with enough detail.

Great explanation of vectorization and parallelism and good code samples to compare OpenMP, Intel Cilk and Intel TBB.

Very useful!
