Great historic read that'll teach the blockchain

The book starts with a disclaimer that this isn't going to be super technical and will skip conversations on highly technical matters, but despite this it dives right into the mechanisms with a partial prerequisite understanding of key pairs and cryptography 101. most technical people will cope.

If you're the type of person that learns by example, this book will help you understand all the hoo-ha and provide a foundational understanding for keychain and crytocurrencies. hearing the actual conversations from founders as the develop the platform allows you the understand how they established bitcoin and communicated the reasoning for controls such as PoW and mechanisms such as blockchains.

this book personally helped me by answering all the questions I had about the establishment and allowed me to understand the current issues so that I could asses which alt-currency is likely to work most effectively.

Narrator is also a good pick. very easy to listen to due to sound voice control.

Solid Bitcoin design information

The content is interesting for those interested in the theories behind Bitcoin and history of it. The downside is it being a literal reading of a technical book that wasn't adjusted for the spoken form, hence the reading out of some very large numbers and no explanation of diagrams being talked about.

Historical testimony

This book describes historical moments with all their simplicity.
There is much more to the bitcoin history but this book is a good testimony.

This book would read WAY better.

The title says most of it. Due to the nature of this book in which itnis quoting a lot of forums and replies ro the posts the audio version continually repeats the title of a forum post for every reply amd jt gets repetitve, fast. I think I'll buy a paperback version of this and read it because there are sections where if you're not be intensely interested in the technical jargon you could just go ahead and skim.

Lively Upbeat Performance

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Narrator has a lively upbeat performance. Makes a dry subject exciting. Content comes from the original Satoshi writings.

Very good historical Bitcoin information

I enjoyed this audiobook. The content really helped to explain the foundational building blocks of why Bitcoin can serve as a good store of value versus Fiat money.

The only downside with using this audiobook was having to go online to find the diagrams referenced in the audiobook.

Overall, I'm definitely glad that I purchased this!

Difficult listening

As a collection of spoken internet forum threads, the inclusion of "re:whatever at time and date" before each passage brings TL:DR right off of bitcointalk.com and into audio. Satoshi's writings are less revealing about himself than might be hoped and due to their age, if you're already a BTC user, you'll already know much of it, so it's more a historical than practical listen
