A really good introduction to codes, ciphers, and secret writing. It's clearly and simply written, presented in a logical order, and sets out the basics of ciphering and deciphering in a very accessible way. My children are often astonished by how much I know about this subject and although I have also read far weightier tomes, it's the contents of this book that equip me with the essentials to answer my children's questions!

Of course, a really dedicated reviewer would have encrypted the review

I was fascinated by codes as a child and enjoyed trying out those described in this book.

This book made no sense to me, and was rather a drag to get through.
