Multithreading Applications in Win32: The Complete Guide to Threads

Multithreading Applications in Win32: The Complete Guide to Threads, Jim Beveridge, Robert Wiener, ISBN: 0201442345

It does a very good job at describing the Win32 API for multithreading but the applications of multithreading assumed is strictly I/O related (Networking, printing, writing/reading files). The set of techniques for parallel processing on the same data is completely absent such as data organization in memory to optimize its parallel access. This is probably due to the age of the book as when it has been written, single core processor system was the norm. Parallel processing will become very important with the growing popularity of the multi core systems. Despite this weakness, this book is still my best recommendation for learning multithreaded programming on Windows since, to my knowledge, there is not yet any book tackling the subject of parallel processing on a Windows/x86 platform.

I want you to find in this blog informations about C++ programming that I had a hard time to find in the first place on the web.
