I love terse books, but even for me this book is too terse. It could really benefit from additional samples and explanations. Read full review

The book accompanying a course taught by Len Adleman, co-inventor of RSA encryption, father of DNA computing, and a stellar lecturer. Poor textbook is doomed to be the forgotten stepchild of this course. Read full review
