> senior engineers read this book

How does one become a senior engineer if you don't understand concurrency?

Mutable state is most easily solved by having cpoies of everything, but then that's a tradeoff between performance and infrastructure/resource costs, but I guess that if you're in an all-Java shop that isn't much of an issue.

Reading a book on the basics doesn't mean you don't have a grasp of them. I'd argue that refreshing your knowledge on things is a mark of a good engineer, regardless of seniority.
