Confusing

For something that is for beginners, I would expect it to be more explanatory, doesn't explain how a computer creates a transaction. The narration is horrible, I am assuming it is an automated voice, because it is hard to understand some of the words and it has absolutely no personality.

Very informative

This story was very informative, but the narration, in my opinion, was a little weird. His pronunciation of certain words, and the way he talks and annunciates his sentences isn't normal. But it's still understandable.

A must read for everyone!

A must read for everyone. I went into this book expecting to learn a little bit about Bitcoin and try to understand the basics to why it is such a draw to so many. But what I got was a quick lesson on the history of money in general and how it has built and shaped every aspect of society today. Such an interesting and eye opening book.
