and Joe, I mean Tyler and Cameron, as in the infamous Winklevoss twins That s really what this book is about, because I would be kidding to tell you it s actually about Bitcoin whether in upper case Bitcoin or lower case bitcoin The twins are the heroes here, valiantly pushing for checks and balances in the seedy world of crypto currency and employing their family s values and ethics of hard work and hand shake promises, as rock solid and tidy as when Frank and Joe solve their case and come out winners, every time Give Me A Break If I wanted a PR puff piece about these twins I would seek out a long form piece on Medium Where is the journalism in this research, meaning where is the objectivity Truth is long term these guys could be complete suckers instead of winners because bitcoin has a future that is so risky and so unknown You wouldn t know that reading this book because it is so unbalanced I had to stop reading this book half way due to the overwhelming buttering up and ass kissing of the Winklevoss twins I am not sure how much the author received from the twins to write this book but it is so far from the truth you d think Fox News has some competition in that space The author makes it seem like the Winklevoss twins were responsible for the rise of bitcoin, that they are some type of geniuses, WTF man What a waste I did enjoy the Accidental Billionaires book Mezrich

dumb jocks who live off of old money and dream about being future tech entrepreneurs and were screwed over by Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook If you will excuse me, I will go and throw up now I thought this was a fascinating book Although I have heard quite a bit lately about bitcoins and cryptocurrencies, I really didn t understand any of it and actually had little interest in learning about it However, this story drew me in Not only did it enlighten me about this financial world, its radical new technology and its unusual characters but it presented it in a way that read like griping fiction It s a story that could impact us all and the end isn t in sight yet.I won an advance I thought this was a fascinating book Although I have heard quite a bit lately about bitcoins and

copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway for this honest review Mezrich has clearly drunk the whole pitcher of Bitcoin koolaid This book reads as an infomercial on bitcoin and the Vinklevii so it s interesting if you are a full on convert I am not so I LOLed my way through many parts of the book Also, though Mezrich paints the Vinklevii as super smart and hard working and moral all of that, there was literally no evidence in the book to back up that claim.
