Try Allen Holub "Taming Java Threads". Seems pretty good to me

In the JavaRanch Bunkhouse, Advanced Java section, there is a review of "Java Thread Programming: The Authoritative Solution" by Paul Hyde, as reviewed by JavaRanch's Matthew Phillips.
Matt gave it 10 horseshoes, extremely high praise!
Check out the review, consider the book.

Sorry I am new here and just figuring out how handle the barn How do you reply messages anyway? I guess I am not the only one, since I see many users re-quoting the original author's question.
About your book thing, I have some suggestions. I am actually in the middle of reading on the subject.
If you are starting here is an order I would suggest. Start with "Java Threads" 2nd Edition by O'reilly. This is one of the better O'reilly books that I have encountered. The major theme of the book is in Q&A style and in the case of threads is a very good blend.
After reading the "Java Threads", you will be tamer when reading "Taming Java Threads" by Allen Holub. Obviously, from the title, threads are not tame by nature. Allen will lead you to use threads with the more advanced constructs and features of Java.
Finally, from prospective and 'design patterns' standpoint "Concurrent programming in Java" by Doug Lea is an absolute gem.
Cheers,
Thread them smoothly
Leslie

Just wanted to add my votes for Paul Hyde and Doug Lea. Allen Holub's book is good too but I found the font used makes it a bit less readable than the former two, but that's just me, YMMV.
If you're not up to reading a whole book, "Core Java 2, Volume II - Advanced Features" by Horstmann and Connell and "Java 2 Developer's Handbook" by Heller and Roberts each have a chapter that has good basic coverage of threads and synchronization.

thread prograsmming is altogether different discipline. in context of java , i think Doug Lea's book is best in treatment of the subject.
allen holoub's articles at javaworld are very good resources.
