From the Back Cover
Incorporating currencies, payment methods, and protocols that computers use to talk to each other, digital currencies are poised to grow in use and importance. The Handbook of Digital Currency gives readers a way to learn about subjects outside their specialties and provides authoritative background and tools for those whose primary source of information is journal articles. Taking a cross-country perspective, its comprehensive view of the field includes history, technicality, IT, finance, economics, legal, tax and regulatory environment. For those who come from different backgrounds with different questions in mind, The Handbook of Digital Currency is an essential starting point.

The technical coverage in the book is good. But readers from a non-programming background can benefit too. This is not a narrow technical text but one that looks at the business chances. Managers and people wondering what to do next with their careers in startups might consult the book.
The only drawback is the cost. Why so high? Given this, you might want to search elsewhere for cheaper hints of the future.
