Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Technologies: A Comprehensive Introduction Illustrated Edition by Arvind Narayanan [and the course on Coursera] are very good
.@aantonop has written all you need to know...
Inventing Bitcoin is the best intro book
Grokking Bitcoin if you reallllllllllly want to understand it
I usually give people this if it’s their first #Bitcoin book - just short enough not to be overwhelming, just thorough enough to give the big picture overview that’s needed. H/t @real_vijay
Bitcoin Clarity is good
- The Price of Tomorrow to add a bit of a counter to the usual suspects. Super important thesis with only a few actual pages related to #bitcoin
grokking bitcoin is my favorite by far.
