Summary

Have you heard of, or stumbled upon, magically Internet money? Kiara Bickers’ Bitcoin Clarity is the solution to the struggle many people face when trying to understand Bitcoin. This method focuses on mental models, visuals, and systems thinking instead of code as a way to explain Bitcoin without price hype or industry jargon. Understanding Bitcoin doesn’t come by someone telling you exactly what Bitcoin is, but by giving you a new perspective to see it from.

Whether you are an entrepreneur, an investor, a politician running for office, or a pageant mom matching big dresses to tiaras, Bitcoin Clarity will forever transform the way you look at money, what cryptocurrency is, and why you are interested in it, to begin with.

Superb

I have read a few books on Bitcoin and the Blockchain but this is by far the best breakdown and easy to understand book written about the whole system that is going to change the way we live.

Thank You For Writing This Book

I thought I would take a break from my second "go-round", the first while commuting, the second while at my laptop with the PDF accompaniment, to say thank you to the author. The concept of cryptocurrency is so well laid out and thoroughly explained. She really does bring clarity to a sea of confusion in the world of blockchain. Although she may not be as polished as a professional reader, I always prefer the author in order to get the proper tone and inflection that only the writer of the topic can know and to her credit, I picked up on the topic immediately.
I also found myself in lockstep agreement with her analysis of the role played by the Government, the Federal Reserve, and the SEC. This is much more than just a primer on Bitcoin. It is as much a discourse on why use Bitcoin as it is on how Bitcoin works. I highly recommend the book to anyone interested in cryptocurrency and specifically Bitcoin. In a little more than six hours, you will go from cloudy to clarity and know enough to confidently enter the realm of Bitcoin.

Dry tumble weed

This book is too technical for my liking. Definitely not a beginners guide. Author over shot the clarity portion of her book and over complicated it. Its not as technical as Mastering Bitcoin by Andreas Antonopoulos but it is just as dry and more meant for the programmer type. If your all about that life then this book is for you. It was extremely boringly stale. I would recommend better books that keep you drawn in like The Bitcoin Standard by Saifedean Ammous.

The only thing that I did not appreciate is that the images that she references cannot be seen.
If images are going to be referenced then one should be able to see the image
