Mystified by aspects of parallel computing? You’re not alone. But take heart. Advance orders are being taken on Amazon.com for a massive four-volume “Encyclopedia of Parallel Computing” that costs a mere $1,734.81.
Yes, you read the price correctly. Relatively speaking, that’s a bargain. The four hardcover books and companion eReference tool normally sell for $2,050, but Amazon offers a 15% discount, bringing the price to $1,734.81.
