Quoting the wikipedia page: """multiple threads within a process share state as well as memory and other resources"""

If you never worked with threads, then you really need a tutorial about threads, or even a general explanation about threads; the reference manual is not such a place.
Programming with threads has really complex aspects that are not inherent to Python.

[Some people will also say: if you never worked with threads, don't start]
