It depends on where you are in programming and learning.  I wrote 
Introducing Erlang for people starting with nothing but a rough sense of 
programming.  In many ways it's meant to be a welcoming companion before 
(or during) reading Learn You Some Erlang, Erlang Programming, or 
Programming Erlang.

If you want to learn at a faster pace (and go much further), Learn You 
Some Erlang For Great Good is stunning.

I'm very happy that LYSE and Introducing came out at just about the same 
time, and even happier that Fred Hebert was kind enough to tech review 
Introducing while he was finishing up LYSE.

Etudes for Erlang amazes me - I didn't expect someone to write a 
companion to my book, and J. David Eisenberg turned up with wonderful 
exercises.  I'll have more on that soon!
