Nice work to draw out attention to the book although you needed not to have gone through the stress by writing down all the table of content a simple link is enough and if interested we click on it and browse through... Well the merit hunt is hitting up and such actions of yours points in that direction

I added the table of contents because someone asked for it in an earlier post. It was actually a really good suggestion, as clicking random links isn´t the way to go. I did not write the book or any content for merit Wink

Thanks alot this will be helpful for the newbies.

People totally new to Crypto will definitely benefit the most, but it might be interesting for well advanced users too.

Dont take this personal,neither have I clicked on the link to your book to verify it's content,if it's quality or not
You seem to be a starter yourself,and how long have you been in the crypto world,from my real world experience,it actually isn't a days job to write a book as one needs tons of knowledge garnered,and it isn't acquired within a short space of time
Or are you an alt to a more advanced member in here

I'll do well to click your link and check out your content

I appreciate your time and effort on creating this 394 paged book about cryptocurrencies but I would suggest two things.

1. You should Cite your references properly


Upon seeing your reference section you only copy-pasted the sources for your books. If you want to make your book somehow professional you should properly use APA citations indicating the author as well as date of publication. Here is a quick start guide on how to properly cite website links using APA citation. Also you need to go more deeper than wikipedia and actually cite the ones being posted in their webpage.


2. Use proper spacing in your content


The majority of your book is written like this big blocks of letters without any proper spacing by using paragraphs. You are trying to put your content in just one big paragraph per chapter which is really an eyesore for readers. Try separating them point by point or in 6-7 sentences per paragraph in order to give as much space in your book.

Overall the book needs a lot of editing to do especially when it comes to your references, if you want readers from across the board you should do a lot of refinement in your book. Try adding some pictures or illustrations as well even if its black and white (of course illustrations not made by you should also be referenced.

Great contribution to the community, thank you for writing a book and sharing it with us!

At some point the amount of content you can add to new versions will get small. At that point it would be wise to consider moving this book from a PDF onto your wordpress site. The world of information lives in the cloud...get this information on the web so it can be interactive, so people can find it easier, so people can reference specific sections easier, so you can add graphics to help aid the learning, etc.

Keep at it and thank you!

Thank you very much for your suggestions!

You are absolutely right about the references and I will habe a look at the APA citations you mentioned. I thought about using endnote at first, but that doesn´t work well with google docs sadly.

I agree that those walls of text are quite exhausting. I tried to add some separations, but I will keep that in mind as I go through it again.

I really appreciate any suggestions and hope you will continue to give some feedback as you go through the book!

It´s definitely top priority. I am currently going through some of the different possibilities to enhance the citation process.

It's not everyday you get to see someone trying to write a book about cryptocurrency,with the aim of educating others,it really is a noble task and I must commend you for it
Going through the book,it doesn't look bad at all, just needs a little more proof reading and also to correct some errors either in its citation and otherwise,if that's done then the book will be wonderful

Thank you! I really hope that I can improve the book by collecting different opinions and experiences. In my opinion, education should be free and available to everyone. That´s my way of contributing

Thank you very much! I am more than happy to go over the comments and hear positive feedback. I would appreciate your feedback as you go through the book.
