Creative answers but no correct one so far.

They used ants instead of a honeybadger.



This is very close in the concept.. but no cigar

Hmm, maybe they used the wrong type of animal?



Although, I much prefer the honey badger Smiley

That ant species dont have tails:



Or its a mutant 7th leg, that doesnt fit there.

That's not a tail, it's the end of the rear right-side leg.

As said above, it should be an Alpaca. Or a pair of alpaca socks, or at least the BTC symbol.

As a (relatively) early adopted, the new price pump is making me feel generous... Who is smart enough to tell me what is wrong with this book cover? 0.5 BTC reward for the right answer.

Very good. That should be the answer if it isn't the correct one.

The usage of ants would imply that we are all stupid little drones working for our corporate masters. They are probably right but I would prefer a big panda bear on the cover.

The book is comparing bitcoiners (us) to ants. This mean that this cover is seeing us as slaves that have no personal feelings and that work for a centralised authority, which can be can be the FIAT system.

On the other hand, if we see positively ants, the cover can tell that we are building strong structures (like ants nests, but here Bitcoin), small fragments by small fragments. Even if this is not something wrong, this is still my analysis of that cover and maybe it can inspire you Wink !

"What is this? A book for ants!?" (Zoolander). Sorry I had to do it.

With that being said, I can only speak of the book cover design since I'm a graphic designer. I know it's part of a series (O'Reilly) and animals are the unifying theme (plus same typography and different colors for each one) but I don't really how ants fit or communicate what Bitcoin is all about.

The way I understand it tries to communicate the skill of growing or accumulating Bitcoin. This is a perfectly valid idea and fits the whole animal theme I mentioned. The problem is the image of hard working ants communicates just that, hard work and a demanding read.

I would've used another animal for sure.

Ants are not decentralized. They are controlled by the queen.

Very good. That should be the answer if it isn't the correct one.

Ants aren't controlled by the queen.

Who or what are they controlled by?
Worker Ants are simple beings performing basic functions that ultimately supports the queen (and her eggs).
Even if the queen does not have true control over them, their existence is to her (and her eggs) service.

God save the Queen!

it seems that he is right, they only work together to support the colony, they have their own agenda, on what should be done, but it's not done primarily for the queen, they however protect the queen in the case it is needed

Since too many asking about ants, read this preface:

Quote
Preface :
Why Are There Bugs on the Cover?

The leafcutter ant is a species that exhibits highly complex behavior in a colony super-organism, but each individual ant operates on a set of simple rules driven by social interaction and the exchange of chemical scents (pheromones). Per Wikipedia: "Next to humans, leafcutter ants form the largest and most complex animal societies on Earth." Leafcutter ants don’t actually eat leaves, but rather use them to farm a fungus, which is the central food source for the colony. Get that? These ants are farming!

Although ants form a caste-based society and have a queen for producing offspring, there is no central authority or leader in an ant colony. The highly intelligent and sophisticated behavior exhibited by a multimillion-member colony is an emergent property from the interaction of the individuals in a social network.

Nature demonstrates that decentralized systems can be resilient and can produce emergent complexity and incredible sophistication without the need for a central authority, hierarchy, or complex parts.

Bitcoin is a highly sophisticated decentralized trust network that can support a myriad of financial processes. Yet, each node in the bitcoin network follows a few simple mathematical rules. The interaction between many nodes is what leads to the emergence of the sophisticated behavior, not any inherent complexity or trust in any single node. Like an ant colony, the bitcoin network is a resilient network of simple nodes following simple rules that together can do amazing things without any central coordination.

The ant at the top has an extra leg. I think.
