“As such this book an ideal textbook for graduate students who have an interest in distributed computing; it will also work as a reference for researchers and interested professionals. The book is very well written and has a rigorous approach to the subject.

       From the reviews:
       “Concurrent programming is the study of the methods which will ensure
       correct interactions. ... Raynal (Univ. of Rennes, France) presents these
       classical techniques at the beginning of his book, and then moves on to
       cover such topics as transactional memory and current areas of research
       like consensus in the face of crash failures. The coverage is very up-to-
       date, including references through 2010. ... This would be an ideal text
       for a beginning graduate course. Summing Up: Highly recommended.
        Graduate students, researchers/faculty, and professionals/practitioners.”
                                                 (P. Cull, Choice, Vol. 50 (11), August, 2013)
      “A very comprehensive treatment of both fundamentals and recent
       results in concurrent programming is presented in this book. ...
      The book is well structured, with many examples to help the reader.
       Each chapter starts with a short presentation of the content and a list
     of keywords, and concludes with a summary of the main points and results.
                             ... I can recommend this book ...”  (Sergei Gorlatch, Computing Reviews, June,2013).

    From the reviews:
        “The book presents in well structured manner the basic concepts and
           algorithms currently used in distributed systems based on message
           passing. ... The book can be used as textbook by undergraduate students
           in distributed systems. What distinguishes this book from similar ones
           are the text accessibility and the well organization of a classical
           material. Many figures and pseudo-codes are helping the understanding
           of the algorithms.”
