You find better insight online

Unstructured, keeps repeating certain things without going into any detail at all. Overly excited narration.

Badly written and Narrated

This book is merely a sensationalism around possibilities of block chain in a very thin and very broad context. It tells you very little of worth. Additionally the narrator speaks similarly to 1990s Action movie trailers. It feels like he's trying to sell you something which gets irritating. Some facts in the book are also incorrect as well as a lot on conjecture on the authors part which is sold as fact. This book isn't worth the cost.

As Advertised...

This is a solid, basic primer on blockchain technology and how it can be applied.

Good but speaks fast

The speaker is hyper and speaks as if note taking is not possible! Just slow down and it's great!!!

A short introduction to what Blockchain is

Maybe this book is written for those with no knowledge of what Blockchain is and in this case it is a good introduction, though somewhat pushy. Those looking for more in-depth analysis will miss it in this very quick read.

A really SIMPLIFIED guide

Its ok as an over simplified overview. It would be more enjoyable if it was not read in a style and voice as when a bad insurance seller tryes to convince you about good things in a realy bad deal.
