    Comments about oreilly Working with Odoo:

    This book is a follow-up to the popular title, Working with OpenERP. In this volume, the author covers all the basics of installing and configuring this open-source enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for your business needs. It includes user administration, accounting, sales, invoicing, and purchasing, as well as some special features which may or may not apply to your company, such as manufacturing resource planning, marketing, and warehouse inventory management. The book even covers some basic model and view customization, though don't expect it to delve too deeply into this vast and complex topic. I found this book helpful as an introduction to Odoo 8.
