## Reviews## User reviewsUser Review - Flag as inappropriate "The Code Book" is a fascinating explanation of both the history of cryptography and crytpography itself. Singh covers everything from simple monoalphabetic ciphers to quantum encryption, even including a Cipher Challenge with 10 codes to be broken by the reader (most of them far from trivial, difficult enough that the first team to complete the challenge won $15,000 from Singh). Interesting parts of the book include detailed descriptions of encryption and decryption methods used in World War II, as well as an overview of the technical and political aspects of RSA, the current (and currently unbreakable) encryption that ensures security on the internet. User Review - Flag as inappropriate The Code Book is a book on the History of Cryptography and Cryptanalysis by Dr. Simon Singh. User Review - Flag as inappropriate i love all his books. Try reading fermat's enigma if you like this. User Review - Flag as inappropriate One of the best books I have read. As well as being an excellent writer, Simon Singh is an excellent teacher. He can take seemingly complex concepts and break them down into its simple components to make anyone understand them.
