Narration was awful - Information was excellent

I’m 90% certain that the narrator was actually a computer. Word emphasis was placed in all the wrong places and words were pronounced incorrectly throughout.

The information was excellent and highly informative. I would buy the actual hard copy if I had it to do over.

Excellent introduction to Bitcoin

Written in a journalist style. It covers the whole life of Cryptocurrencies with insights in the traditional economy money issues. A good book to start from. Not much-added value for people familiar with cryptocurrency and blockchain, but it is a pleasure to read and puts all the sides together.

How to utilize the technology of Blockchain.

Top 2 After listening this, I now feel more confident investing and using cryptocurrencies that are supported by the blockchain. With so much coverage of bitcoin and blockchain in the news as of recent. I wanted to be well-informed before considering investing or using this new technology. There are references provided for services that use blockchain and how to get started which was helpful for a beginner as myself. Thank you for the guide!

Best book

I recommend this book for someone who is absolutely clueless about the topic. You can probably find all the information in this book by looking it up on Wikipedia. But the author has done a great job of compiling it in a concise and easily comprehensible format. Definitely worth the money spent.

FIVE STARS!!"

I choose to give this 5 stars because I knew nothing about the subject and after completion of the book I understand the concept, due to his anologies and illustrations.
I started on this path after considering buying bit coins. Onward to a book on bit coins.
