Narrated by: iRobot

Honestly the worst narration ever. So hard to listen to. I doubt I finish the audiobook, I’ll by the paperback though.

Multiple mistakes by the narrator and very choppy in his reading. Pretty sure it was recorded by using the iPhone voice memo app

Terrible narration and repetitive

The audio book was terribly narrated, which made it hard to follow. Additionally, it often repeated the same information it read off making it seem like there was a problem with the audio file. Furthermore, the author goes into subjects that are completely irrelevant to what the book is a about, for example, exceptions error messages in python. Maybe I somehow received a bad file. It is the only explanation I could think of... The book barely touches on the subject its supposed to cover. I would not recommend this book to anyone.

Difficult topic made simple

Despite being in the industry for a number of years, concisely describing what blockchain technology is or how it can be applied is still a challenge. The author does an excellent job in clearly laying out concepts and how everything fits together. This is one of the few credible books I suggest when people ask ‘Where can I learn about bitcoin?’. I’ve been in the space for quite some time and I still learned from The Basics of Bitcoins and Blockchains.

I really enjoyed this book

I really enjoyed this as I'm close to this area professionally and needed to be able to ask the right questions. I tried on line courses and video's but they went into the weeds fast and rely on jargon and bluster.
This is different simple but clear language, clear context around the development of money and exchange. The most important point is the language and voice the author a clear chatty style that reminds me of having a coffee rather than struggling through a lecture.

Love it..

Brian Lain succeeds admirably in giving the hearer the foundations to understand the key aspects of Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, blockchain, and related developments. The book is particularly masterful in unpacking how cryptocurrencies and blockchain relate to the mechanics of financial transactions and banking. Unlike most authors on this topic, Lewis writes systematically and carefully. Yet he still manages to convey the excitement that has generated so much interest in the potential of these technologies.

Best Buy!

Writing a book about cryptocurrencies and blockchain—and I've know because I've done it—is difficult for two main reasons. One is that it requires mastery of several unrelated bodies of knowledge: finance, cryptography, and law for starters. The second is that it's nearly impossible to divorce oneself from the hype. Things change quickly, and it's hard to separate out the enduring from the ephemeral. No one has been able to pull off a clear, comprehensive, dispassionate introduction to the phenomenon for a general audience...until now.

Not sure what nonsense I've just listened to. Is t

I'm not sure if I've even got the correct book. This was terrible!! First of all, it sounds like it's being narrated by a computer - tone changes every few words, spaces mid-sentence, etc.
As for the content of the book, the first 2 minutes of each chapter seem to very briefly discuss some general high level topics / history about that type of crypto. After that it just starts talking nonsense about how to type some basic lines into Python if you're a beginner trying to learn about coding.......basically nothing whatsoever about what this book is supposed to be about!! To be honest I have a feeling I've been sent some dummy audio file instead of the correct book because what I've wasted my time listening to has nothing to do with the title of this book.

Excellent Job

Definitely worth your time listening through this difficult and complex topic, and Lain makes it significantly simpler and takes a very objective view to both the technology and its use as cryptocurrency.
