Informational

I knew nothing about Blockchain. So, I know lots more than I did. I understand more about how Bitcoin works because of this. While I don't think I fully understand all there is to know. But, this book is a great introduction for someone who knows nothing of this. The narrator actually made it interesting. Great pace and inflection.

Short, Sweet, and to the Point

The narrator did a good job of keeping me engaged while discussing a rather dry subject. Blockchain is a major technology that is creeping into lots of different areas, not just crypto currency. This is a title I would recommend to my non technical friends who want to understand Blockchain better.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
