This is a totally non-technical, short and to the point, guide to Bitcoins (and crypto currencies in general). As I'm new to Bitcoin and Litecoin etc, I found myself in information overload when searching the subject online. This guide has pretty much nailed my basic understanding of the whole thing now. Thanks to the author!
I just wanted a quick overview of what all the fuss is about and this delivered it. Haven't cross-checked with another source to verify if it's telling the truth but what I've read here fits with the scraps of information I've picked up elsewhere.
