A must have for every Erlang & Elixir dev / architect. Yes, I've put here "Elixir" on purpose - whether you like it or not, the sooner you start learning about tech internals of OTP/BEAM, the better. Fortunately, this book is really good with helping with that:
* very decent descriptions of gen_fsm & gen_event (best I've seen in Erlang-related books)
* very good introduction into how applications & modules are built internally
* nice build system introduction

Last few chapters are

A good reference book that teaches best practices and fundamentals required for implementing reliable, fault-tolerant systems in Erlang. The book comes with very easy to grasp prose throughout and the examples are clear and concise. Highly recommended and valuable book that I'm sure that I will be revisiting again to revise.

I think many of the ideas here have affected my way of thinking about systems, although I'm unsure if I'll ever use Erlang in my projects - on the other hand, Elixir and therefore OTP _is_ on my radar.

Sidenote: the chapter has a chapter on the
