Is it worth reading?

I managed to read it halfway through. Not the most enjoyable book ever, I must say, and few (if any) original insights, up to that point anyway. 

The Regression theorem is a memetic equivalent of the Theory of Evolution. To say that the former precludes the free emergence of fiat currencies makes no more sense that to hold that the latter precludes the natural emergence of multicellular organisms.

I have, and it is well worth reading IMO.  It even made it onto my list of Ten Books That Influenced Me.
