Spies, secret societies, religious cults as well as anyone who has used an ATM or the internet rely on the making and breaking of codes for security. 1579120407 (ISBN13: 9781579120405). Although one could conceivably read this over-700-page book from cover to cover (there are exercises with answers), that would be a long-term project. It's interesting, but not that compelling to someone who's not obsessed with codes and ciphers.

Join the Cryptokids as they apply basic mathematics to make and break secret codes. The Cryptoclub also includes short descriptions of famous examples of secret codes, including the Beale Ciphers, the Zimmerman telegram, and the German Enigma cipher. This book has many hands-on activities that have been tested in both classrooms and informal settings. The accompanying workbook provides students with problems related to each section to help them master the concepts introduced throughout the book.

Awesome book in very good condition as stated by the seller. I will definitely be purchasing more books from here. This is a fantastic book with every code, cipher and machines to do the coding from antiquity. Fascinating and will be reading and using this for many years to come. EXCELLENT PRICE! Thank you.

Great condition

Have a lot of code books

It was a nice book for the money (paperback)
I am more of a hardback type of Purchaser.
I still gave it a very good rating.

This book is a history of codes, ciphers and secret forms of communication from ancient times until the present. It is the most complete and the most current of any such books I have ever found.

Complete: I have read many books that talk about Rommel's army reading the codes sent by the American military attache in Cairo. But I didn't know that this was in the 'Black' code, and that the capture of the German radio outpost at Tel-el-Eisa revealed the fact that the Black code had been broken and that then the Allies began using the Black code with false information.

Current: The U.S. Navy used a cipher machine during WW II called the ECM Mark II. Information on this machine was declassified in 1996 (60 years after the machine was adopted), and that information is included here.

An interesting section of the book is on Unsolved Scripts. Here are some writing samples discovered by archaeologists that remain unsolved.

This book does not go into modern computer based codes. These have gotten so complex that you need a book on them by themselves, as well as a degree in mathematics.

I got this book on a whim, and found the information it contained to be incredibly thorough. The ciphers were explained, along with encryption and decryption tips. However, the first quiz in the back for sure, and I don't know how many others, appear to be inaccurate, at least in the copy that I got. The first quiz uses the Polybius Cipher to encrypt a series of famous locations. The first location is 33 11 43 11 45 23 35 34, which decrypted with the Polybius Cipher as instructed reads N A S A U H P O. That isn't a place, as far as I know. The answer key at the back says that the answer to the first location is M A R A T H O N, which encrypted with the Polybius Cipher reads 32 11 42 11 44 23 34 33. All of the letters, except 11 (A), are 1 number off. The rest of the locations have a similar discrepancy. Coincidence? I think not. Has anyone else noticed this?

While this book covers a wide range of topics, I found it to be shaky on some topics. In particular, modern developments such as quantum cryptography, electronic warfare terms (SIGINT, ELINT, and especially RADINT--book description is wrong). Perhaps the author's strength is in historical cryptography, and he has not researched or does not understand modern developments. My overall impression is that the book covers an enormous range of topics, but in a shallow way. Cryptanalysis is not discussed in any depth, unlike other code/cipher books I've read.
