@crilofer I haven't read that one, but I'll definitely check it out! "Payment Systems in the U.S." is one of the books that a lot of Fintech employees read when they first get into the industry. It's fairly broad in scope but provides good baseline information.
Finding a reference that's specific to your region is important as well - what market are you looking to learn more about?
@crilofer - have you read Anatomy of the Swipe? It's definitely a must read, wealth of information and good resource to have handy. The author is a very good friend of mine, @siddiquiahmed - him and I were actually just talking about potentially doing a fireside chat about his book here on the community. Stay tuned! 😀
Thanks for the recommendation. Really enjoying this book. _Exactly_ what I needed as a payments n00b.
Picked up a copy yesterday and already half way through.
I've been brought in by a client to run discovery and implementation of Marqeta and, whilst dev & discovery isn't new to me, the finer nuances of digital payments is. The author has such a straight forward way of running through things and an engaging voice. Maybe @siddiquiahmed should consider novels as well 😄!! I love his style.
Here are a couple good fintech/paytech books..
