Good book

It teaches you the basic principles behind blockchain and the Ethereum platform. How to use it, what type of applications it's good for and why it has more potential than bitcoin. It's a good start for those who want to understand and be part of this revolutionary technology.

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.

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.
