[erlang-questions] Learning Erlang from the scratch

But for those fence-sitters out there, the book really isn't noticably
targetted towards Java people (at least, i never got that impression). I
haven't used java in years, and I didn't enjoy it when I did use it, but I
thought the book was great. It really made a great case for Erlang, and
explains the language well.
