Interesting and entertaining. Accurate in all technical details I am about to check.
Too bad it's not 100% jargon-free though, which may makes it a bit hard at time for non-technical people (for instance you have to know what is DosBOX at some point, despite it's non-essential to the point).

A cracking good read, very well researched and sourced, and the perfect gift for that person at work who asks you " So, what's the deal with Bitcoin?".
