Based on the title, I hoped that this heavy two-volume set of books containing a number of articles would teach me a lot about how to write programs that run on several machines at once. After reading a couple of sections and skimming further, I figured out that these articles are about what we nowadays call "neural nets". Maybe these are great articles about neural nets, but that's not what I wanted to read about. I stopped.
