I think I can say it is for beginners and medium level programmers as if provides a step-by-step introduction. Maybe it can be used also as a reference for the more advanced developers.

This book is definitely not for someone who has no knowledge of Java -- you should have at least have a working knowledge as a prerequisite. Having said that, we don't assume that the reader is a Java expert or even very experienced. We do talk about threading concepts from the basics and build on them.

Furthermore, we don't expect this book to be read in one sitting. While the beginning of the book assumes basic knowledge, it does goes up during the later half of the book. For example, the I/O chapter assumes knowledge of NIO, the scheduling chapter assumes much more threading experience, and the swing chapter assumes... well... swing...

Think of this book as your second book, that you will read, and then go back when you have specific issues you need to tackle.
