    "Great Information on the History of Blockchain"

    Very detailed on the history of blockchain. This book opened my mind up a little to bitcoin, ethereum, litecoin, etc. It also clears up what a blockchain is and who is involved with it.

    "Awesome introduction to blockchain"

    If you don't know anything about blockchain this book describes it in a very simple way. Moreover, you will grasp the concept how Bitcoin works and what are the other uses of blockchain. The last chapter deals with the technical part; I recommend to see other visual materials to grasp the concept. Lastly, if your level of English is good, you can increase the speed.

    "Decent overview, but lacking"

    I wanted to know more about block chain and how it worked. This book does go over the history and applications of block chain. However, it breezed over how it works pretty quickly. If you are tight on money, skip this book and read the Wikipedia page on block chain.
