1.0 out of 5 stars Actual Quotes From The Book, January 27, 2018

The overall rating of this book is high, and that worries me. Here are some actual quotes from the book:

“Let’s say you read in the news that Bitcoin prices will fall and then rise again. It’s time for you to invest.”
What? That's your advice about when to invest?

“The perfect investment strategy… take on a few strategies that interest you, mix them up, and start making profit that way.”
Yes, that is the perfect investment strategy that this book ultimates leads to.

I can only imagine the 4 and 5 star ratings are from absolute beginners who've never invested in anything but heard about Bitcoin from a friend and are grasping for straws to understand it. If you know anything about business or investing, you will be mindblown by the incoherence of this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars The book arrived dirty and bent, January 11, 2018

This review is from: Cryptocurrency Investing Bible: The Ultimate Guide About Blockchain, Mining, Trading, ICO, Ethereum Platform, Exchanges, Top Cryptocurrencies for Investing and Perfect Strategies to Make Money (Paperback)
The book arrived dirty and bent. Looks like a POD, so a bit strange it would show up like that. But, no worries -- let's see what's inside. Honestly, for someone who purportedly graduated with an undergraduate degree in computer science from Stanford, I'd expect a better presented product. It reads like it was written by a third grader; one of the stories the author penned in the beginning of the book about him and his three friends "sharing an old notebook for accounting" that they passed between them for business, for example, was utter nonsense. I get it, he was trying to create something we could relate to the concept of a shared ledger. But, come on man. The information is truly basic, and can be found just about anywhere online on blogs for free. There are no references or citations anywhere. And it's fairly haphazardly put together, from an organizational stand point. I appreciate how new technologies have given rise to new authors, and helped give voice to those who'd... Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice Concept; Poor Quality and Depth, January 6, 2018

This review is from: Cryptocurrency Investing Bible: The Ultimate Guide About Blockchain, Mining, Trading, ICO, Ethereum Platform, Exchanges, Top Cryptocurrencies for Investing and Perfect Strategies to Make Money (Paperback)
This is not the first self-published book I've purchased where the author appears to be jumping quickly on a trend - throwing a book together quickly to fill a void. I suppose that the world of cryptocurrency is changing so rapidly that the normal publishing process is probably too slow to serve the market, but this book is just poorly written and confusing. For example, he uses terms like (PoS) without defining them until two chapters later. What? The graphics in the print edition are mostly unreadable even with bright lighting and my glasses on.
The topic of Bitcoin mining is inherently confusing so as to seem a bit like science fiction; I will give him that. But this is exactly why a professional writer and editor are needed to produce such a book. It's a real skill to explain such outlandish topics in such a way that the general public can understand them and this book falls short. In the end, I have no intent of Bitcoin mining, but it would be nice to understand the... Read more
