I've been using Bitcoin for a few years now, and for some time I've wanted to help spread its use to a broader audience. I've found that most of my friends and family don't really understand Bitcoin: not only what it is and how it works, but even why anyone would be interested in it ("what's wrong with our current payment and currency system?").
I'm a writer, and I've had a few books published, so I thought I would write an easy-to-read, question-and-answer book explaining the basics of Bitcoin: the what, the how, and the why. There are a lot of great websites and videos out there explaining the basics of Bitcoin, but some people, I have found, would rather pick up a book to get started.
I'm happy to say that it was just recently released (in paperback and Kindle):
Bitcoin Basics: 101 Questions and Answers
You can also buy it using Bitcoin at my website
Obviously, if you are on this forum you probably don't need this book for yourself; but if you know someone you would like to have learn about Bitcoin and they prefer reading a book to going through websites, then this book is for them.
If you have any questions about the book, feel free to let me know!
