Publisher's Summary

In 25 concise steps, you will learn the basics of blockchain technology. No mathematical formulas, program code, or computer science jargon are used. No previous knowledge in computer science, mathematics, programming, or cryptography is required. Terminology is explained through analogies and metaphors. 

This audiobook bridges the gap that exists between purely technical guides about the blockchain and purely business-focused guides. It does so by explaining both the technical concepts that make up the blockchain and their role in business-relevant applications. 

What you'll learn: what the blockchain is; why it is needed and what problem it solves; why there is so much excitement about the blockchain and its potential; major components and their purpose; how various components of the blockchain work and interact; limitations, why they exist, and what has been done to overcome them; and major application scenarios. 

Who this audiobook is for: everyone who wants to get a general idea of what blockchain technology is, how it works, and how it will potentially change the financial system as we know it.

Great Introduction or Review

This is a non-technical and comprehensive introduction to blockchain. It consists of twenty-five steps in five stages: 1) Terminology and Technical Foundations; 2) Why the Blockchain is Needed; 3) How the Blockchain Works; 4) Limitations and How to Overcome Them; and 5) Using the Blockchain, Summary, and Outlook. After having read a number of technical papers on blockchain several years ago, and also after having researched the topic at the request of my employer, I found this book to be a great review and expansion of my knowledge. Even though I listened to it as an audiobook, I was able to visualize all the diagrams. In addition to the author's clear technical explanations, I found his assessment of the current and future state of blockchain adoption to be very well thought out and credible.

Needs Tables

Not until you buy the book do you find out that it refers to graphic tables. Without theses for me its useless.
