Read in February, 2008

Very fun! A mixture of puzzles (codes), math (very light) and history. It was a pretty easy read that can be done over a period of time.

Most interesting was tying the development of codes to actual historical impacts of codes, ciphers, codebreaking, and cryptology. Perhaps one of the best explanations of Diffie-Hellman and RSA techniques - very understandable!
