Everyone who buys the book (either paperback or in e-book format) can claim £10 in FREE Bitcoin, courtesy of LUNO, one of the most trusted Bitcoin wallets in the crypto space with over 3 million customers in 40 countries.

If you have already purchased your copy, please scroll to the bottom of this page to claim your Bitcoin with just a few clicks!

If you subscribe to Amazon’s KOLL (Kindle Owner’s Lending Library) or KU (Kindle Unlimited) you can read this book for FREE! Simpy use the links below and begin!

It’s hard enough explaining what Bitcoin is to someone who has never heard of it, but where do you even start for someone who doesn’t use the internet? Or have a mobile phone? Like, for example, my mum.

This book is the answer. Written with the absolute beginner in mind and using non-technical analogies, it will take you through everything from understanding what it is, how it works, who runs it and what could happen next as use of this fascinating — and divisive — alternative to money spreads throughout the world.

So, whether you’re a total novice and want to learn all the essential facts, a Bitcoin guru who wants to find simple ways to explain it to other people or just curious about the whole thing, this book is for you. It even comes with FREE BITCOIN to get you started on your journey into the world of cryptocurrency. That might sound daunting right now, but don’t worry, it comes with full instructions on how to claim it.

This is the book I wished I had when I started my own journey into Bitcoin!
