Doesn't build to meaningful depth, lacks direction

This is a 'crowd sourced' concept book where each chapter is from a different contributor all discussing various aspects of Fintech. Unfortunately the result is that each chapter is unconnected to the rest, at least unconnected in any meaningful way.

Because of the concept and construction the book doesn't build. It is essentially a long list of 'articles' which won't interest most people, even if we are into Fintech. The lack of narrative progression means that the book says nothing deep about Fintech. Articles bore with specifics that don't inform but strangely don't say much about specific Financial Technology companies. For example there are a few paragraphs written from national perspectives: how is Fintech in France, India, etc. One of these includes a list of very specific banking penetration statistics for Mexico. But there is no specific analysis of business case wins or losses and no technology is analyzed.

In addition there is an annoying tendency to act as a cheerleader for how Fintech will take over everything with too little room for criticism, constructive or otherwise. This book preaches to the converted but will be unlikely to educate a specialist in the area and it won't interest someone who is only curious as it struggles to make points of value.

Full disclosure, I only got a third of the way through the book. That's me giving the book more than it gave back.

Essential for a whole understanding of fintec

Simply put this audio book has opened my eyes to how connected every market is to finance and how vulnerable everyone is to change - even big banks. Read / Listen to this if you want to be on the train and take the opportunities that arise from finance 2.0
