Very disappointing

Very poor. The author knowns a handful of simple facts and just repeats them over and over again throughout the book.

Much more superficial than I expected

May work for those who have no idea what cryptocurrencies are. Otherwise - 15-20 minutes worth listening.

Good book

The books is very good for 2017 and predicts a lot of things that became reality in 2021. There is no need to repeat 10 times and waste 10 min of audio to tell people to message if they find spelling errors or wrong information , it’s waste of time, and most people don’t find any value in this . It’s very repetitive and beginning of the book and end are wasted on this. Besides this books was good overview.

Good Basic Information and Explanation

Good content of information for a beginner to crpto currency's particulary to Ethereum to digest. The progress of the information is at a good pace to allow beginners to follow. Will help anyone who wants to learn more about crypto currency's and the technology behind them.

Dull and repetitive

This is a very repetitive book. Everything is repeated three or four times at least.
The structure of the chapters is also annoying, especially in the audio book, since they are not numbered, so you really never know if the narrator is reading the name of the chapter, the sub chapter, or the bread text. Find your information elsewhere.

Stay away

Each chapter is 1 or 2 minutes long. I would ask for a refund if audible allowed.

very superficial overview

very superficial essay on ethereum, poor editing. A product clearly aimed at monetising on an hot argument with few audible books without adeguate research or author expertise on the topic.
