I want a refund, and preferably NOT in bitcoin..
This audiobook is undermined by the narrator.
The concepts related to Bitcoin are difficult enough to understand without the work of a narrator who CANNOT READ TECHNICAL content.
It is excruciating to hear the narrator mispronounce so many words such as "Byzantine", "hierarchical", "integer" and to wait for him to sound out words in the text.
The narrator's delivery is stilted and choppy at best. He breaks up sentences at inappropriate places which makes the content more difficult to understand.

I was really looking for a book to help me understand the ins and outs of Bitcoin and this book did just that. It was so clear and concise. I am now ready to start purchasing my own Bitcoin with a great understanding as to what it is. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that is interested in crypto currency as this book is a great guide to reference. Thanks to the author and the narrator for this amazing audio book!
