Dull and no balanced level of detail

The book promises a guide to blockchain technology, but fails to deliver a guide. It steps over certain crucial and complicated concepts making it difficult to understand for people new to the blockchain. In other chapters there is a lot of unnecessary detail in examples. The complete list of bank projects with redundant details on linkedin quotes and hackathon winners of 2014, doesn't teach the reader anything. They could have given examples and analogies explaining all concepts and jargon much better.

If you want to learn how the blockchain works this is not the book for you.

Hard to listen to.

Audio was read by a monotone computer voice not a narrator so was hard to listen to and understand. Good information though.

It’s a bit dry

But I suppose that goes with the territory. It covers the topic in a broad sense but to use it you will need to delve deeper for sure.

A disappointing purchase of lists

This book starts strong with the introduction and finishes reasonably well by urging the reader to learn more. In between both ends of the book seems to be recital of endless lists of who is using blockchain and for what. The content could just as well be someone regurgitating the results of a Goggle search. Company A does this, company B says they will do that, company C plans to do the other, company D is working with Company A, and so on for the entire book. Little content beyond a description for each company, and chapter after chapter. On the upside if you want to know who is doing what with blockchain and you do not want to do a couple quick searches online, this book is perfect!

Great Way to Get Caught Up to Speed

This book did a great job of slowly introducing the blockchain to the reader and connecting it to concepts already known.
If you already know how the blockchain works and just want more information about what is going on with it, just skip to chapter 8.

Getting more confident with this book

This book was really interesting. The author does a great job of breaking down some fairly technical information in to a format that is easily digestible. The author also does a great job of explaining how the technology that supports bitcoin ties in to the traditional banking industry. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to to learn more about Blockchain.
