Reasonably Informative; Horribly Edited

It is really sad to review this book - a really great opportunity, so much effort, and such a miserable result.
The editors of the book asked many distinguished figures in the Fintech arena to write short chapters about something. Sometimes very relevant for them, sometimes just something in the arena. The result is a book with about 70 short essays, many times overlapping, and in many cases falling short of covering the topic. Some are high quality, some are far from that. In some of the cases I found myself listening for minutes to lists of unclear statistics about something. The end result is I feel instead of reading one coherent book about one or several relevant topics, I got 70 introductions to about 10 different books, of which 7 I wouldn't even consider reading.
To avoid judging to harshly I should reiterate that some of the essays were interesting, informative, and of high quality. So listening was not a complete waste of time.

Giving a voice to those who remained unheard

Passion for Fintech in contribution of the cream of crop. Banks are lagging behind the curve. The newest opportunities in financial circles gained advantage and drove change, by not reinventing the wheel, but by superceding it.

Good book on FinTech

For windows 10 I had to breake the book in to to and to contact support two times to fix the sound, it works on any other device.

But over all it is a great book on the Fintech Scene right now.
