I'm a grandma and..

First let me say that I appreciate the introductory nature of this and the author's other basic crypto info books. Being a new techno tool, cryptocurrency has a lot to offer but also has a lot of new terminology. However, I very nearly condemned this and the author's other books as "trash," for the reasons below. I am glad I didn't, and I think many people will find this book to be very helpful.

What follows below is not a rant but is intended as merely info and feedback for the author, in hopes that he will not lose other sales due to unintended consequences.

So to the author, I am truly insulted by the description of this and other books as being so easy that "even your grandma" or "grandparents" can understand it.

I thought we had progrssed far beyond this age-ist and sexist language years ago!

FYI, I am a grandma now and was 20 years ago when I worked in software development. My team and I created the very software upon which almost all base code of software that you and many others use today was written.

Further, my mother, at the age of 80, retired from the US Patents and Trademarks Office Special Research Dept. in Washington, D.C. There she taught advanced and complex specialized computer research methods. She, too, was a grandmother and even a great-mother!

I hope this feedback is helpful. Thank you for your hard work on this and your other books.

Well done and worth it.

Well done and worth it. The chapter on technical analysis, while still well done, is a little bit off topics in my opinion. Yes it can be use to analyze crypto charts but it is more of an intro to tech analysis than anything else while the course is about cryptocurrency. Otherwise very good course for a beginner with cryptocurrency.
