Hello,

I got feedback regarding geth installing. I think it would be worth to mention to the reader that geth will synchronize a blockchain size greater than 1TB. The book takes the sync exercise as a normal task an actually could be painful, so a kind of warning and some workarounds (because not everybody wants to download 1TB blockchain on their local machine) would be nice.

Hope it helps.

Hello, many thanks for your interest in the book and for your comments.

Just to let you know I have recently added estimate of size and time required for downloading the Ethereum blockchain in light, fast and full mode both for MAINNET and TESTNET (Ropsten). You will see this in the final version of the book. Thanks again for your feedback!
