I would suggest this book for anyone technically minded that wants to take the deep dive into understanding blockchain technology.
Andreas explains the Lightning Network, a beautiful second layer solution to achieving payments at scale. He also details how Segregated Witness solves the problem of transaction malleability while making transactions smaller and aligning fee incentives to reduce the UTXO set.
I appreciated all the real world examples that help anchor the discussion. Andreas never fails to impress!
