I also think the mathematical analysis is good, too, not too easy but not super hard either.
This book just pulls together all the crucial information between two covers. I find myself agreeing almost exactly with where he places his "key" symbols in the margins to highlight important sentences, which is also a good sign that the book is "right on."
Thus, this is a great introduction to parallel programming. To me it does not matter much that it doesn't cover the whole MPI standard, since many MPI calls are minor variants. With this book as an introduction and the language standard for MPI / OpenMP for reference a student should be set for a productive career in parallel programming.
The summaries of the MPI commands in the appendix are as good as anything I've found on the web.
The book also gives detailed examples (code) of how to do mundane things like distributing the contents of a file across distributed memory processors and using your random number generator in such a way as to guarantee that your program produces the same results irrespective of the number of processors it runs on.
