The best one I've found is "Erlang and OTP in Action" by Logan, Merritt, 
and Carlsson.  It's the only book I've found that goes seriously into 
the OTP platform, and into building distributed production systems with 
Erlang.

Now that's good in the sense that I have improved, but bad in that the code is still bad and its costing me effort while I change it now. Its also bad because I should have enough programming experience to avoid writing bad code. I've been programming since 74.
