Great Information on the History of Blockchain

Very detailed on the history of blockchain. This book opened my mind up a little to bitcoin, ethereum, litecoin, etc. It also clears up what a blockchain is and who is involved with it.

Awesome introduction to blockchain

If you don't know anything about blockchain this book describes it in a very simple way. Moreover, you will grasp the concept how Bitcoin works and what are the other uses of blockchain. The last chapter deals with the technical part; I recommend to see other visual materials to grasp the concept. Lastly, if your level of English is good, you can increase the speed.

Worthwhile

Good overview with sufficient detail on nuts and bolts. Too many books in the topic are full of breathless discussion of implications of block chain etc without sufficient explanation of how things work. This book strikes a good balance.
