"John Hill sets out the landscape of the emerging world of disruptive financial services, drawing from recent examples to present a practical approach to learning about fintech in the first textbook on this topic. He connects a diverse set of topics in easy-to-digest chapters, setting these in the context of our existing financial ecology. The book is ideally suitable for advanced level undergraduate or masters students - for computer scientists in learning about financial services, and readers from economics and finance on how new computer platforms will transform their own industries." --Mark Perry, University of Michigan
