A quick update
I've finished the book and am now madly re-writing, cutting, trimming and generally improving things. I've always been more of a re-writer than a writer and this time it isn't different.
It shouldn't be too long now. The first half of the book is pretty much there and I'm very happy with it, though I should say the chapter explaining how Bitcoin works is about the hardest thing I've ever had to write. As Satoshi Nakamoto said, explaing Bitcoin is 'bloody hard'. 'Extremely bloody @#$%ing hard' , he should've said.
By the way, I'm sure I've cracked the mystery of who he is.
I have had a slight hitch that has delayed things rather. Early last week, I managed to break my ankle playing football. Hospitals and all the rest of it took up a lot of time and the break has since immobilized me . Even making a cup of tea is a huge undertaking. Thank goodness for loved ones. I'm not in any pain (no need to send replies of symptathy), though it didn't half hurt at the time, it's just inconvenient - and the delays to other areas of my life have meant delays to the book. Otherwise I would have hoped to be almost going to press by now.
Anyway, here's a selfie taken the evening I got back from A&E.
All the best
