What would you do if you had to explain bitcoin or lose the love of your life?

Marcus Coleman may not know anything about winning over his potential father-in-law, but he does know Bitcoin. Before the end of his trip to Italy, Marcus must clearly explain the greatest breakthrough in the history of money. If he fails, the expensive engagement ring tucked away in his suitcase will never be worn. And success may prove more difficult than he assumed.

As Marcus gets to know the enchanting Italian countryside, culture, and cuisine, he’ll have to balance Bitcoin explanations with romance. In this whimsical book, #1 New York Times bestselling author Chris Brady shows that fun and finances can go together like marinara and mozzarella.
