The short review is this: if you want to know threads inside and out, buy this book.
For those who want more details, you may read on. This book assumes no Thread knowledge. By the end of the book, you will understand the finer points of thread programming. The book is broken down into three parts.
Part 1 shows you all of the ins and outs of threads. There is a lot of sample code and many details. This section will give you all you need to know to program with threads.
Part 2 shows several techniques for good thread design. I found the chapter on breaking out of a blocked I/O state particularly informative.
Part 3 has the Thread API and the ThreadGroup API. It is a nice reference, but not particularly necessary.
It is hard to find negatives about this book, but I did manage to find two. The primary negative is that the reading is a little dry. It wasn't so dry that the book was unreadable. The other negative is that there is no website to download sample code. This didn't affect me much since I prefer to type in the code anyway, but others might find that to be a major drawback.
