Les Codes Secrets décryptés : Comprendre et déchiffrer les codes utilisés de l'Antiquité à nos jours
Les Codes Secrets décryptés : Comprendre et déchiffrer les codes utilisés de l'Antiquité à nos jours
by Didier Müller
Edition: Paperback
Price: £15.94

4.0 out of 5 stars Les Codes Secretes, 22 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This a provisional review as I have not finished reading this book. There are twelve chapters followed by an extensive bibliography. So far I have found the book quite interesting, I am just starting Chapter 4. This book is described as being the best book on cryptology written in French and this may well be so. However, for those whose mother tongue is English, the best thing might be to look through the bibliography and choose one of the English language books there. The two that I noted were "Codes, Cyphers and Secret Writing" by Martin Gardner and "The Codebreakers,The Story of Secret Writng" which the author considers to be "La Bible indispensable a toute cryptologie". When I have finished reading Didier Muller's book I shall update this review.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Worlds Greatest railway Journeys - The Czech Republic and Holland, 28 Feb. 2011

A well produced DVD. Plenty of railway footage, about three quarters of the total, and both this and the non railway footage was absorbing. The best in the series that I have seen so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars The World's Greatest Railway Journeys - Germany, 28 Feb. 2011
A well produced DVD. One section concerns a journey beside the River Rhine and River Moselle from Cologne to Trier via Bonn, Koblenz and Cochem, the other section comprises a journey from Dresden to the Isle of Rugen via Berlin. About half is railway footage and I found the railway portion and the remainder interesting.

2.0 out of 5 stars The World's Greatest Railway Journeys - Portugal, 28 Feb. 2011

I was disappointed with this DVD. Only about one fifth of the footage was railway, and most of the remainder was not too interesting to me. There were some nice shots where the train runs alongside the river. A fair amount of the DVD comprised the making of port.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Penguin Dictionary of Curious and Interesting Geometry, 9 Feb. 2011

An intruiging book, there is so much fascinating geometry and Mr. Wells covers a wide range of it. There are almost no proofs, but once a theorem is given then recourse can be made to the internet for the proof.

5.0 out of 5 stars The World's Greatest railway Journeys, 9 Feb. 2011
A well produced DVD. Probably about 60% railway footage which was all steam. The rest comprised visits to St. Petersburg, Moscow, Vladimir, and other Russian cities and was genuinely interesting.

3.0 out of 5 stars The World's Greatest Railway Journeys - Denmark and Sweden, 3 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As with other videos in this series the amount of railway footage is only about half the time if that. Also I think that there is now a rail link across a bridge between Denmark and Sweden, this is not covered in the film as presumably the film was made before this link existed. I got the DVD cheaply so it was worth having, I would not have wanted to pay the full price. The best three in this series that I have found so far are the ones for Germany, Russia and Holland and the Czech Republic.
