"OTP in Action" is an excellent book for learning OTP.

The following reading will take you a long way with Erlang:

Learn you some Erlang

OTP In Action

On Erlang, State and Crashes

"Making reliable distributed systems in the presence of software errors"

The last two links are "Erlang propaganda" describing the hows and whys of Erlang.

If you are considering writing any kind of fault tolerant distributed systems or frankly any client server system (In any language) I highly recommend reading the book "Erlang and OTP in Action." [1] It's a reasonably short read and will make you think through what needs to happen to build a robust system and get you to really understand and internalize the stuff that is talked about in this article in much greater detail.

The only downside is you might start to feel a bit dirty the next time you try to build anything with node.js, eventmachine, twisted or any of the other evented systems that are popular today.
