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. ...more

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

Very small book that introduces the concept of blockchain, the people involved in the mechanism of blockchain, some examples of the use of blockchain. Tantalizing and I will read more on the subject.
