Format: Paperback
When I bought this book, I had hoped for a structured tutorial on the .NET Task Parallel Library and PLINQ. I had hoped it would start with simple Task objects and work its way up to more complex development issues. Instead, the book starts out with a discussion of processor core efficiencies and patterns for decomposing jobs into tasks. Those topics would work function better as appendices to the main text, which should focus on the .NET libraries and how to use them.

The second chapter spends more time talking about sort algorithms than the TPL. That was pretty much the point at which I put this book down and started looking for something else. I wouldn't recommend this book as a learning resource for the TPL or PLINQ, although it might be useful as a review for those already familiar with the libraries.
