"Stephen P. Williams has created a small miracle – a book about blockchain that helps the rest of us understand what it is, how it works and what the implications are for the future of our world. From the first page to the last, just when you think you know what this book is, it surprises you. By turns poetic, philosophical, explanatory and provocative, Blockchain: The Next Everything is a must-read for anyone who has ever wondered what all the hype is about, and why they should care." -- Ty Montague, author of True Story and Founder of Co:Collective
“Shakespeare famously advised readers to be on watch for tides in human history. Now we have blockchain. If you are curious about it, read this book. Stephen P. Williams has created a remarkable and remarkably accessible piece of work on one of the most important topics of our time.” -- Rye Barcott, author of It Happened on the Way to War and co-founder of Double Time Capital
“An astonishing, illuminating tour of a mind-bending new economic model--written with the verve and page-turning appeal of a novel. A book for the nerd but especially for the rest of us scratching our tech-terrified heads. And--how did he do this?--it's inspiring and fun.” -- Patricia Hampl, author of The Art of the Wasted Day
“This short introduction to a cutting-edge technology is appealingly informative and hopeful.” ― Publishers Weekly

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
+ It's loaded with white space. It seems intentionally meant to provide "filler" but there is often just a paragraph on a single page, almost like a random thought, and that's it.
+ I learned next to nothing from the book, and I know I have a lot I need to learn about this topic.
+ There's way too much "cutesy" writing - -attempts at humor. It isn't necessary, and after a while, it gets really annoying.
I've yet to find a blockchain book I really like, but I've got another one arriving today. Maybe that'll do better!
If you already know about these subjects and are looking for some new insight or trends, this book will do you no good.
Basically a discombobulated collection of equally discombobulated thoughts.
Reading Wikipedia would do you more good!

It seems as if all this "author" has done is to read Adam Greenfield's Radical Tehcnologies and Melanie swan's Blockchain then blurted out this claptrap. No research, no new information., no theories, no data, nothing.
And it is apt to point out that Greenfield's Radical Technologies, who he references often, is a far superior work than this. And I encourage readers to buy that book rather than this.
In sum - lazy, unintelligent, poorly written babytalk that just goes "OHHH Blockchain ain't I cool". It's purpose is to bolster the authors middle age crisis by way of pretensions to being hip and cool by the fact he "wrote" a "book" about blockchain.
