Start by reading this.

Print it out and read it in the bath or on an omnibus.

Better still read it in the bath, then leave you copy on an omnibus
for somebody else to pick up and enjoy.

To find this and other documents go to

Click on the the first link

Then on any of the links in the sidebar in the category "Erlang
PDF manuals can be found here 

Once you have read "getting started" proceed to

Or part one of the Erlang book is at

Still a good read :-)
