Good Introductory Book on Issues of Parallel Programming

Found out a link of this book from Reddit Programming, called a 'Is Parallel Programming Hard, And, If So, What Can You Do About It?'.

I skimmed through this book and trust me if you are into system programming you'll get hooked. I liked the way Paul (author of this book) has explained key obstacles of hardware in parallel programming. Its not too detailed but he has explained the basic issues in a very simple language.

Here is a link to author's official announcement of this book.
