I would suggest this book for anyone technically minded that wants to take the deep dive into understanding blockchain technology.
It is starting to get a little outdated in as much as there have been a few advances with Bitcoin that this book either mentions only briefly or doesn't include. Segregated Witness is mentioned in an appendix, and Bech32 isn't mentioned at all. The 2nd edition was published in July 2017, so it's only about a year out of date currently. Also, explanations of the new technology can be found online in various places, and you still need the understanding of Bitcoin that the rest of the book provides.
One final note: this book is a great resource not just for programming, but simply understanding, Bitcoin. Much of it is reasonably complex and requires programming background, but the book does not require you to actually be plugging code into a command line to appreciate the insights and explanations.
