Watch this video:
weusecoins.com

Then read the FAQ:
en.bitcoin.it/wiki/FAQ

Then come back and ask more specific questions. Wink

He's talking about fiat money, not cheap Italian cars. But seriously, what's with the open-ended question that could be answered by Google in five seconds? Tongue

Thank you for posting to the bitcoin community boards.  I won't apologize for the rude people.  Here is a link some articles & a radio interview that gives you a great overview of what bitcoin is and why it should be used.

http://evoorhees.blogspot.com/2012/04/bitcoin-libertarian-introduction.html

And here is an article in the new yorker about bitcoin:
cryptome.org/0005/bitcoin-who.pdf

radio interview:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ZAFGRrp_kc

Now that took me all of 3 minutes to put together.  Hope it helps you and others.
