Format: Hardcover
I am extremely disappointed with this book. The coverage of the material lacks depth, thoroughness', and clarity. I had a bad feeling about this book from the point I read in the preface that the book uses "modern presentation methodologies", and "students claim that this book is fast to read and easy to comprehend".
This book is a fast read because it does not cover any material in depth. The majority of the book is devoted to tables and figures with captions that are in many cases half devoted to defining the acronyms used in the figure, or verbose repetition of the book's reading.
This book is further hindered by its attempt to be prophetic, "one billion transistors on a single chip!" The review on the back of the book claims "a lively personal account, complete with survival tips, of his experiences". There is nothing lively about this book. Personal experience is limited to references to Milutinovic's research papers, and the case study style material comprising the appendices of the book. Tips do not exist.
There is not enough depth, or comprehensive exploration of the material for "tips". There is nothing in the book that will even lead to insightful extrapolations by the reader. The depth of the book only leads the reader to obvious conclusions that may be covered later in the book, again without any depth.
The first six chapters are more or less half hearted explorations of the material they are intended to cover. It is not until the last two chapters, which are most closely and directly related to the authors premise for DSM (distributed shared memory) architectures, that the depth approaches any respectably level.
