4.0 out of 5 stars Good book - eBook a bit lacking, 23 May 2011
This review is from: The Code Book: The Secret History of Codes and Code-breaking (Kindle Edition)
I'm about half-way through the book, and it's a very interesting and easy-to-absorb read. My only complaint with this Kindle edition is that the book makes many references to various figures and diagrams, none of which seem to be included in the digital edition.

When I saw the criticisms of the Kindle version of this book, I had a search around (Googled "the code book simon singh pdf" and found a PDF version that appears to be complete and to have all the illustrations, tables, etc. At the time of writing, it is available at http://books.expect-us.net/dl/The%20Code%20Book%20How%20to%20Make%20It,%20Break%20It,%20Hack%20It,%20Crack%20It.pdf

This seems to be an incredible oversight for an eBook. It's now 2014. Has the eBook been fixed?
