Post by: weex on August 23, 2012, 06:58:02 PM
Hello everyone,

Do you need an easy way to get started with Bitcoin or are you looking for a simple step-by-step Bitcoin introduction to point people to? Many people get caught up on technical details which are totally unnecessary for starting to use Bitcoin. So here's an eBook written just for this purpose.

Free preview wherein you do your first Bitcoin transaction: https://www.coindl.com/previews/You_Can_Learn_Bitcoin-David_R_Sterry.v1.2.preview.pdf

The eBook is available at the following booksellers:
  • CoinDL (BTC only or buy for a friend): https://www.coindl.com/page/item/391
  • iBookstore: https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/you-can-learn-bitcoin/id569230042?mt=11
  • Lulu: http://www.davidsterry.com/youcan

PM me if you're a blogger or writer who would like a review copy, I have it in ePub and PDF format.

Thanks,

David

Nope, I wrote this book to free, not to restrict.

And, if you are concerned about privacy stay tuned for the CoinDL release.

Hello 'coiners,

Over the past couple months I've realized that there are few resources that make it easy to get setup and to obtain the minimal understanding necessary for using Bitcoin and using it safely. Many people get caught up on technical details which are totally unnecessary for starting to use Bitcoin. So here's a new eBook. It's of a similar length to my Introduction to Bitcoin Mining (https://www.coindl.com/page/item/201) but is useful for a much wider audience and has more step-by-step instructions in it.

This eBook is now on iBooks for both iPad and iPhone! Working on getting a screenshot of the book's product page. Hopefully it shows up for a search of Bitcoin.
