Did not like delivery, voice and misinformation.

This was hard to listen to! There was enough misinformation that it's hard to take the author seriously. Lots or very poor analogies that seem like the author does not understand how the technology actually works coupled with a lot of talking around stuff instead of getting to the point.

Fantastic audiobook!

I joined the blockchain industry 3 months ago and I wish this audiobook was out back then... Anyway, it's good to get up to speed now. The Basics has helped with my client conversations, especially around the difference between public and private blockchains. Although I am not particularly technical, it was easy to understand the maths/crypto bits.

Fantastic audiobook!

It also uses his unique style of simplifying without dumbing down to explain all the areas related to blockchains such as banking, cash, and payments. A great audiobook to understand the Basics of Blockchains but also a great way to understand the context and the importance of the technologies.

Outstanding audiobook!

This audiobook is a gentle introduction to all the concepts related to cryptocurrencies and blockchains and is easy to listen to and engaging. The audiobook is well researched - I've been in the industry for 4 years and still learned some new facts! I worked with it for over a year at R3 and he has a great knack for explaining technical ideas to a lay audience, without using jargon.

Not bad. I learned a few things

Good book for beginners. I don’t know if it deserves 5 stars. But in my opinion it is a solid 4.

It’s hard to listen to wallets being read out numerous times- it’s a bit annoying. But hey, thanks anyway!
