""This second edition of Joe's seminal Programming Erlang is a welcome update, covering not only the core language and framework fundamentals but also key community projects such as rebar and cowboy. Even experienced Erlang programmers will find helpful tips and new insights throughout the book, and beginners to the language will appreciate the clear and methodical way Joe introduces and explains key language concepts.""--Alexander Gounares, Former AOL CTO, advisor to Bill Gates, and founder/CEO of Concurix Corp.

I have the 1st (print) edition, it is one of the books that originally got me interested in the functional paradigm and concurrent programing with out using threads, (share nothing). After Erlang I also learned Scala which adopts many of the ideas from Erlang especially actors, and pattern matching. The 2nd ed. definitely improves on the original and is more enjoyable to read.
I would definitely recommend this book to other programmers who are interested in taking advantage of programming the multi-core CPUs in most current laptops and desktops which are more prevalent than before, with out the pitfalls of shared memory thread based techniques.
As a Ruby developer I am also interested in Elixir which is a more expressive Ruby-like language running on top of the Erlang VM,
In summary, I think this book is a must read for anyone interested in Erlang.
Buy it. You won't regret it.
