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

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.

If you're looking for a quick introduction to OTP in Erlang, this is not it.

Instead, this book takes the approach of implementing solutions to problems without OTP behaviors, and then adding them in. The reasoning behind OTP becomes clear this way.

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.
