Hey there, do you mind changing the links you provided in your post? Because aside from the first one you gave us all of them goes to a website (varemedia, cloudofbooks) that is hard to navigate and requires a sign up in order to download the book, but the weird thing is both of the websites wants me to sign up in a movie streaming website which is by the way a different website from where we needed to download the book. In other words the download links you gave us contains a lot of spammy websites and will redirect me to another website with just one click.

Yup it works, good job OP, if you can't provide free ebooks in your links, providing their Amazon link is the best way to go.

Done!!! Thank You for sharing the link, it didn't even cost me a minute to sign up and download the pdf version of the ebook. The website is pretty straightforward unlike the previous links the OP has provided in his post.

"The Innovative Investor's Guide to Bitcoin and Beyond" by Chris Burniske and Jack Tatar, famous personal finance author. The book provides basic guidelines for Bitcoin investment and other digital money, discusses technology pricing, Bitcoin investment experience when to invest and know-how to guide in fever.

I have read "Cryptoassets: The Innovative Investor's Guide to Bitcoin and Beyond" (Chris Burniske and Jack Tatar). It is an engaging read but the key is in the title, it focuses on how to assess cryptoassets for investment. As such it does go into a lot of detail about trading theory and risk appetite so don't read it as an intro to crypto.

I can recommend 'Bitcoin: the future of money' by Dominic Frisby an English comedian/financial journalist. It is a few years old now but does a good job of explaining what money is, how fractional banking is problematic and what crypto offers. It does become a 'who dunnit' as he tries to figure out who Satoshi is, which is kind of redundant. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bitcoin-Future-Money-Dominic-Frisby/dp/1783520779

Jim Rickards has written some good books about the inherent problems of modern economic models. Though not about crypto - and he is a declared gold bug - they certainly provide plenty of ideas about what might precipitate the next economic crisis and therefore open the door for a new paradigm. He has a huge axe to grind but the content is interesting.
'Currency Wars' 'The Death of Money' 'The Road to Ruin'

I recently dowloaded a free PDF of 'Debt the first 5,000 years' David Graeber. This has achieved cult status among crypto enthusiasts. It is by no means an easy read - and I am only part way through - but if you want a deep-dive into mankind's relationship with debt from a monetary, psychological and theological perspective this will be right up your street.

I've read "The Age of Cryptocurrency", and I'd say that it's worthy of a read for every beginner. I'd recommend it.

I wouldn't necessarily read "American Kingpin" as a beginner unless you are into criminal stuff, but that essentially has very little relevance to how bitcoin actually functions and stuff like that that should actually matter to a newbie.

Anyhow, I think that reading these books would be tremendous help to beginners, since they do offer some different points and perspective compared to something like a tutorial online which may only cater to the general needs of beginners and not going into that much depth at all.

You can get all of these pretty much online, but if you're into old school, physical copies, then perhaps Bitcoin for Dummies would be for you, as it may be available in libraries. It probably would not go into as much depth and opinion than the others, though.
