Okay for concepts, but no help in coding,

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Pthreads Programming (A Nutshell handbook) (Taschenbuch)
The strength of this book is it's brevity: 233 pp of text plus appendices. But the code samples are incomplete (fragments). You'll be able to get an idea of how pthreads work and the methods available, but you'll have a very hard time if you need to actually write code. There is an error on p.126. If you want to write code, get "Programming with POSIX Threads" by David Butenhof. It has complete code examples and is not that much longer: 305 pp of text plus appendices. But I did find this Nichols book helpful when I was curious about pthreads. I commend O'Reilly for the nice illustrations in this book -- above average. They helped convey concepts.
