Despite of having an introduction to parallel programming, this book it is not going to teach you how to get the most of parallel programming, how to plan your executions or the tidbits of synchronization. If you are just starting in parallel programming, I recommend you to read "CLR via C#" and continue with "Pro .NET 4 Parallel Programming in C#" (or newer). I have seen there are a newer book named "Pro Asynchronous Programming with .NET", unfortunately I have not read it.
I would like to see more books like this, that basically are differential updates for people already familiar with the topic.
Overall, it is a very short read and probably worth a quick glance. But you could probably gain as much knowledge from outside sources in shorter time!
I'm not done yet, but what I thought were complicated subjects were <20 page chapters which I think could be expanded with much more detail, and real life examples of where various techniques could be used.

VERY bad English, really hard to read. Examples can be hardly followed and rather confusing than helpful. Look for something else.
