It explains everything very cleverly. I used to machine code a Motorola 6502 chip on my Commodore Pet in the late 70's so I am not fazed by the coding sections. Thank goodness AA wrote this BIBLE for bitcoin for the masses.... as that is what this book is.
I am reading it now for a second time...just as enjoyable if not more so because I understand the whole thing so much better.
Do not bother looking for another book...this is the one.
The book also taught me a very useful lesson.The Bread wallet now allows one touch payment to suppliers. My Bread wallet was not set up to require my passcode before making a payment. MAKE SURE YOURS IS BEFORE SCANNING CODES.
BUY THIS BOOK
I am looking forward to a new book by the same author and publisher later in 2018 on "Mastering Ethereum".
Found myself having to reread earlier chapters as focus jumped about a bit but mostly ended up telling me whstvi wanted to know. A bit weak on the difficult subject of elliptic curve cryptography - had the impression the author was struggling also.
