Sergej,

When I read your first sentence I thought that I must suggest "Learn You Some Erlang", but the I saw that you did that as well. But then LYSE is neither a tutorial nor a guide but a book, and definitely worth reading and an alternative to buying a book. And it keeps growing all the time as Fred adds more chapters.
