With the book you can quickly get the basics, but it sure is bit out dated.
You can always find the latest documentation at
http://www.erlang.org/doc.html and especially from the link "Erlang/OTP
R10B documentation" (which at this time points to
http://erlang.se/doc/doc-5.4.8/doc/). There you can find "Erlang Reference
Manual" and "Programming Examples" which are very usefull when in doubt.
List comprehensions (||) are explained in
The list concatenation (++) is explained in
Hopefully these will help you.
