I have been reading through some blogs on getting to know myself better on this promising technology. I'm astonished that there is a book already on this. It is interesting.

I had a look at the ToC of this book "The Business Blockchain" but it does not look like a technical book, but rather a very quick overview of what Blockchain is. Is there a reason why this book was kept simple this way? I was expecting some sample applications where I could use Blockchain (using Etherum or IBM's HyperLedger)

Hi Joe,
This is not a blockchain 101 book from a "How to learn the technology" point of view. It is more about applying blockchain.
But, it is not a "simple" book either. The starting point for applying blockchain technology is to understand its many facets.
This book will teach you "How to think" about the blockchain and its many applications. There is a variety of examples given, and there is a chapter on technology architecture and technical strategy elements.
It is written for non-technologists primarily, but it is also of great benefit to developers.
Thank you for your feedback.
William
