Should have searched for Buffett's comments & saved myself some time
I disagree with "Amazon Customer" who says that it is a deep, complex book for programmers and that you should avoid it unless you know C++ and python. You can learn a great deal about Bitcoin and the blockchain even if you do not know "a stitch" of programming. There are programming "snippets" included, to be sure, but you can skip them with no loss. He explains everything in a very clear and concise manner that anyone can understand, and then, occasionally, shows some programming snippets that implement the feature.
I agree with about everyone else who gave this book high marks. "Boris" commented that "this book is fantastic if you want to learn, and I mean LEARN" bitcoin. I agree. Kent McNaughton commented that "The title sums it up accurately."
Mastering Bitcoin. I could not recommend it more enthusiastically. (Could you tell?) (I've read it once. Now I'm reading it again to pick up what I missed the first time through.)
This book was a pleasant surprise - not a work crank'd out to gain monies from some fad, but rather a well-thought out book on a reasonably complex subject. Kudos to Andreas and thanks!
Its important to know what the future of our transactions will look like and work.
The blockchain is the future, signatures and cryptography have been there for a while, but this implements it in a revolutionary way.
Don't expect the book to guide you step by step to build your own wallet, but the concepts and how they work is all there.

This one book is enough for bitcoin and blockchain.
