5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent introduction to cryptograhpy
This is an excellent beginners' book. It has clear demonstrations of early cryptograhpic methods and how they are solved. Each method is accompanied with a set of problems which are well designed to give beginners some decryption skills.

2.0 out of 5 stars Obsolete
Not a bad book per se - but be warned it is an unaltered reprint of a 1943 edition! - Thus there is nothing about modern codes and computing. I think it is an obsolete curiosity today and rate it accordingly.

This review is from: Cryptography (Science of Secret Writing) (Paperback)
Well written and easy to understand, especially for a newby to cryptography such as myself. The exercise section at the back is nicely arranged to lead the reader through the different levels of difficulty.
