"Terrific audiobook "

"This was a terrific audiobook. I'm familiar with blockchain technologies, but I heard a lot about (non-crypto) currencies and the economic climate in which crypto currencies operate. I really like the writers' flowing writing style."

Fascinating, insightful and well narrated

"This audio book gives a detailed insight into how cryptocurrencies are changing the world and what value the block chain has to offer as a disruptive force. Very well narrated and enjoyable to experience. Would definitely recommend to anyone with interest in bitcoin or cryptocurrencies in general.

One of the things that I enjoyed most was the authors ability to put all topics raised into perspective whilst also providing contrarian views where appropriate"

Great cryptocurrency starter

"I'm glad I started with this book to learn about the history and basic principles of blockchain technology. The author also goes deep into the possible applications of this technology and the current players out there innovating.

These disrupters are the Henry Fords of our generation, and to be mentioned amongst the first pilgrims of cryptocurrencies, wow. Congrats for this great achievement #StatusQuoDisrupters"

Great Narration.

As an audiobook narrator myself...my hat’s off to you Louis Zeman. Very well done Sir. The content is fascinating. I know way more about crypto from this (my real first introduction to crypto) audiobook listen. These journalists are geniuses. Wow on the research and content. Thank you for putting this together. I need to listen again. And I’ll be listening to more audiobooks by Eric Linden as well. Nice work.

very informative explaining blockchain and cryptos

"Call this book not only taught me about the history of bitcoin. But it also explained what the block chain is, this is the true Call genius behind cryptocurrency. I now see them less as a currency and more as a vehicle to put power back in the hands of the people and to empower the individual. I highly recommend this book"

Can easily listen at 1.25x speed"First

"First, this is a finance/economics book. You’ll get a solid overview of cryptocurrency, yes, but it is given within the context of money in general (the history and utility) and the economics that spawned cryptocurrency. The underlying technologies are also covered. Definitely worth a listen."

I recommend everyone read this book!

"I see blockchain now as the internet was in the mid 90s. Most people don't really use it yet, and see it as this odd fringe thing with limited application. Give it time, and I believe it will become a major force in the world as the internet did. Every time I see someone who obviously hasn't actually researched it making some flippant comment about ""magic money in your computer,"" I tell them to read this book. It's really a great primer as to exactly how world changing the potential is. It's not technical, if that's your concern that you don't code and won't understand - you will. It's very well done."
