I can confirm this regarding the motivation for writing a book.
You should not do that for money because, if you get back to a hourly
earning, you often end up being paid much under the minimum salary.
Writing a book is however a good way to promote a language. The french
Erlang community has been very active after my French book.
I should probably make it more lively again.
Please, ping me if you are interested in participating to an Erlang
User Group in France. This group will be active very soon :)
