What books to read? Recommendations!


#1

Hi all,

I would like to start a books recommendation thread.
Obviously books should be related to economics and cryptocurrencies :slight_smile:

Format:

[Book name]
[Author name]
[Goodreads link]
[Short description of why we should read this book]

I’ll start with:

The History of Money by Jack Weatherford
This is a good general “history of currencies” book. The book starts with the first kind of currency e.g. bones and ends in digital currency. The author also provides insights and interesting history on how different governments through out the ages utilized (or failed to) currency as a form of control.

Any thing by Andres Antonopolis.

Introducing Ethereum and Solidity: Foundations of Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Programming for Beginners by Chris Dannen
Helps you understand Etehreum pogramming (to a degree, results may vary).

Sorry to reply to your question with another question, but why books? I’ve only read a few “cryptocurrency” books, but they get outdated fast… The best resources I’ve found are online. Would newsletters and blogs be of interest as well?
