If you're gonna read it for technical details "Don't", it provides general information only (things you can find on Wikipedia)

I felt like the content was getting a bit repetitive after a while, too much IBM specific info and I would've liked a more technical explanation in some areas.

An initiation to the blockchain. The book provides definition, use cases & applications for this technology.

It's just a boasting marketing book for IBM blockChain; too exaggerating on how blockchain can solve everything in business and life.
