Having read the book from end to end several times over the course of it's development I can heartily recommend Richard, Eric and Martin's Erlang and OTP in Action. If you take the time to fully master this book you will be in an excellent position to build scalable and fault-tolerant applications with Erlang/OTP.
Congratulations on the print release guys. I can't wait to get my copy. The ebook is great, but I like the tactility and markability of a book.
Thanks guys, we are all happy to be here and are more then happy to try and answer any questions that you guys have for us!

And who don't want to win a free copy?
You probably want to get up to speed on Erlang before you dive into our book. Its geared more towards folks that have already read one of the other introductory books out there. Joe Armstrong's book is an excellent choice. That said, if you just want to dive right in pay a lot of attention to chapter 2.
