The content is interesting for those interested in the theories behind Bitcoin and history of it. The downside is it being a literal reading of a technical book that wasn't adjusted for the spoken form, hence the reading out of some very large numbers and no explanation of diagrams being talked about.

The book starts with a disclaimer that this isn't going to be super technical and will skip conversations on highly technical matters, but despite this it dives right into the mechanisms with a partial prerequisite understanding of key pairs and cryptography 101. most technical people will cope.
If you're the type of person that learns by example, this book will help you understand all the hoo-ha and provide a foundational understanding for keychain and crytocurrencies. hearing the actual conversations from founders as the develop the platform allows you the understand how they established bitcoin and communicated the reasoning for controls such as PoW and mechanisms such as blockchains.
this book personally helped me by answering all the questions I had about the establishment and allowed me to understand the current issues so that I could asses which alt-currency is likely to work most effectively.
Narrator is also a good pick. very easy to listen to due to sound voice control.

As a collection of spoken internet forum threads, the inclusion of "re:whatever at time and date" before each passage brings TL:DR right off of bitcointalk.com and into audio. Satoshi's writings are less revealing about himself than might be hoped and due to their age, if you're already a BTC user, you'll already know much of it, so it's more a historical than practical listen
