After 1/2 hour on this site, I learned a lot about Threads. I've looked at a LOT
of Java textbooks, and this site beats them all for writing style, correctness
and completeness.

Technical Remarks:

Java is a large, difficult subject. Therefore, one should expect a tutorial in
it to take a while to get used to. Such a powerful tool for learning is worth
spending an hour or so learning how to use. I have found that textbook
references to the Java language also take time to understand their organization.

While this is the most widely-used tutorial, I found it's overall structure to
be confusing. I would often end up following links until the point where I was
not sure where I was.
