Many of the 'legacy systems' once designed to make our lives easier and our economy more efficient are no longer up to the task; big banks have grown more entrenched, privacy exists only until the next hack, and credit card fraud has become a fact of life. However, there is a way past all this - a new kind of operating system with the potential to revolutionise our economy: the blockchain.
In The Truth Machine, Michael J. Casey and Paul Vigna demystify the blockchain and explain why it can restore personal control over our data, assets, and identities; grant billions of excluded people access to the global economy; and shift the balance of power to revive society’s faith in itself. They reveal the empowerment possible when self-interested middlemen give way to the transparency of the blockchain while highlighting the job losses, assertion of special interests, and threat to social cohesion that will accompany this shift. With a balanced perspective, Casey and Vigna show why we all must care about the path that blockchain technology takes - moving humanity forward, not backward.

Drones on and on and... ends on a high note though
Luckily, this isn't a long listen. 10 hours is about 3-4 too much, perhaps just because the narrator is so hard to listen to at length. The book is fine, it's worth a listen, but I won't be coming back.
