I had to make sure I knew my multiprocessing well, having only learned it by proxy while hacking a hobby OS and playing with pthreads. I walked through this little book over three days and it was fun.

I still don't think I understand the full implications of multi-threading still, even though I have written a mini-library and studied "Java Concurrency" book.
