I worked in finance up until 11 years ago. At that time online banking was just starting to take hold but people were still very much reliant on bricks and mortar banking (telephony banking included in that). So much has changed in just a decade and I thought I knew a lot of it but reading this so much has changed that I didn’t know and the way of banking and the world of finance is virtually unrecognisable. And its glorious if you feel brave enough to take some chances. I wouldn’t like to say u ...more

Няма спор, че в книгата Boden наистина засяга темата за развитието на финансовите технологии и как това ще се отрази на нашия финансов живот и отношения към парите в близките и не толкова близките години. Но някак си тази книга повече ме напрегна, отколкото да ме вдъхнови и мотивира да се заинтригувам от някое ново интересно приложение и финансовото ни световно бъдеще.

Всичко звучеше като поредните неща, които изискват усилие, проучване, търсене, информация, че и накрая пак може да се окажеш пре

Meh. As a money geek I was excited for this but it didn’t tell me anything I didn’t already know and it was pretty dry going. The writing style was poor (I’d love to count how many times the word “indeed” was used unnecessarily), thankfully her second book shows much more writing flair.

Because it’s about specific apps it’s already quite outdated, she says herself there’s drawbacks to using a millennia-old medium (books) to write about rapidly evolving technology. I was surprised and disappointed

This is a pretty good book. It's mostly an curation of fin-apps, many of which you'll find useful. Be aware that you can't or won't use 80% of the tools suggested -- either because they're not available in the US, too much work, just not needed, or too ahead of the curve for most folks. And you'll suffer from app overload if you try to use more than 10, and you'll end up using none of them. I suspect the author doesn't expect readers to use most of them, but just know that and be selective about ...more

Very practical and informational.

Loved reading the book. Got to a know about a lot apps that I was not aware even existed. Money revolution is real and this book drives the point home.

Thorough and informative content. My feeling is that the subject matter is less suited to a book and more suited to a blog or a web site.

Best for UK readers

Most of the examples and a lot of the information on how financial systems work are UK based. Less useful if you're in the US.

A great range of app recommendations and insights into the unravelling (in a good way) world of finance.
Miguel Godinho
Fresh insight into a rapidly changing industry, and great for a quick entry point into fintech for a layperson, but hugely UK-dependent view and biased (its bare one-time mention of Revolut despite it being involved in dozens of concepts explained, for example, screams of one-sidedness when taking into account the book was written by the founder of one of their main rivals)
Would like to see more written in this field with a more independent and broad approach
