The book is the collection of articles from various authors including founders, managers, managers, experts. The quality of articles differs, some of them are great, some of them are mediocre but some of them are outdated in terms as things are changing very rapidly: I've started this book 2 weeks ago and just 1 week ago Apple already announced peer-to-peer Apply Pay. But it is a great book as the introduction into FinTech and FinTech startups.

Most important things are:

Conceptually this is an absolutely amazing book, in which the authors make us aware that this is the first “globally crowdsourced” editorial-style treatment of the Financial Technology (FinTech) service industry. For the uninitiated, the book’s sub-title provides a better explanation, as it’s a Financial Technology Handbook for Investors, Entrepreneurs and Visionaries.

It’s simply impossible to adequately reprise the content, given the exceptionally wide variety of specialist contributions; more

Several scholars, researcher or entrepreneurs relates their experience in creating fintech startup, and reflect on the future of the banking industry. Highly recommended as an introduction of what it is to come for the financial industry.

Menos um livro e mais um compilado de textos sobre Fintech, faltou apuro do curador para organizar os artigos melhor e, principalmente, criar temas mais interessantes. A sensação que fica ao terminar o livro é que alguns minutos no Google, com algumas palavras-chave na cabeça e o resultado - turbinado pela hierarquização mais inteligente dos income links - seria muito mais satisfatório. Outro ponto negativo é a escolha pelo formato 'paisagem' do livro que obviamente dificulta a leitura e, para a ...more

I liked the concept of this book. Yet one should be aware that it merely a collection of FinTech related articles and not all strictly related to FinTech as such.

Like any collection of essays, there is great variance in quality, some overlap, and not enough space for nuance. Much of the book is general business principles (location matters, get usability right, etc) that are not FinTech specific. There is a lot of who’s who in FinTech and some dreadful forecasting of the future. What is missing is ideas. The desk copy is beautifully designed but to concentrate on the content, I listened to the Audible version.
Ожидал гораздо большего, чем разнородный сборник статей.

Авторам и редакторам следовало чуть больше, чуть глубже, чуть фундаментальнее проработать тему, убрать повторы и дать свой чёткий прогноз о будущем финтеха.

Ничего этого в книге нет. Зато есть много воды, историй о разных странах и работ десятков авторов, не заявленных на обложке.

Труд, проделанный для написания этой книги, пожалуй, колоссален. Но и читать его очень и очень трудно.

Спасает только интерес к теме, умение читать по диагонали и те

The FinTech Book není klasickou knihou, je tak trochu podivná, jiná a určitě neobyčejná. Posuďte sami. Kniha jako taková je dílo crowdfundigové iniciativy několika FinTech nadšenců. Knihu nenapsal jeden, dva či tři autoři, ale jsou jich desítky. Celkově se na tvorbě knihy podílelo 160 autorů z 27 zemí. Na začátku bylo vytvořeno 189 abstraktů k nejrůznějším tématům z oblasti FinTechu, následně členové FinTech komunity vybrali 86 témat, které byly dále rozpracovány do finální knižní podoby.

I read it for work and it's interesting enough for that. But if you're not working as an investor, banker, reporter or fintech founder it's pretty dull. Read it for work, it's useful for that. For anything else, skip.

#альпина паблишер, книга должна называться так: "ФИНТЕХ - ретроспектива развития современных финансовых технологий"
Первый раз отделяю контент издания от самого издания. Оказалось, такое возможно!
Книга "ФИНТЕХ Путеводитель по новейшим финансовым технологиям" случайным образом попала в мои руки, и случайность стоила 1339 рублей в Библио-глобусе. Книга собой представляет сборник статей, некоторые из которых датированы 2005! Путеводитель по новейшим технологиям :) Но не всё так печально, большинств

This should not have been called a book as it's merely a collection of fintech related articles without much consideration of how a comprehensive fintech book should be. As such the 'book' is very repetitive in most basic concepts and implications of fintech. As a whole this is very shallow and unsyetematic. Totally not worth the money or time.

This book is really a great book which provides lot of information about the FINTECH and how the latest technologies as well as active Venture capitalist funding leads to development at exponential rate in this area. It was really a god handbook where you will get to know about the views of all experts around the world in Fintech space.

Straipsnių Fintech tematika rinkinys. Apie 70% turinio iš ties labai įdomus ir naudingas, tačiau likusi dalis visiškai neverta čia būti. Jaučiu pridėjo tik tam, kad sudarytų solidžios, storos knygos įvaizdį. Fintech tematika yra labai įdomi ir tikrai viena iš topinių temų.

Very superficial, and some narratives are just ads for particular services.

As such, if you -- like me -- know almost nothing about fintech, it introduces you to many companies, regions, and ideas involved. Which is what I wanted from it anyway.

Well suited to purpose.
