There are many books that teach beginners how to write secret messages using ciphers. There are
a couple books that teach beginners how to hack ciphers. As far as I can tell, there are no books to
teach beginners how to write programs to hack ciphers. This book fills that gap.

This book is for complete beginners who do not know anything about encryption, hacking, or
cryptog

Became boring after a while - skimmed over the second half of the book. Tasks are not challenging from the programming point of view, stronger ciphers' implementation requires you to simply code algorithms which you are not supposed to fully comprehend (e.g. you sort of feel the importance of prime numbers but not quite if your math skills are naive).

I've implemented a universal coding/bruteforcing framework, played with the first few ciphers and lost any intereset. I think I don't enjoy cryptog

Want to start programming and you're interested in ciphers? Do the following:
1 - Take the weekend off
2 - Watch The Imitation Game
3 - Spend the rest of your time on Als book

Really enjoy all of his books, haven't checked out his last one but I'm sure I'll pick it up soon! He also answered very quickly when I had some problems with his book.

This book has given me a completely new way an author can explain a topic. The book started with the ABC of python3 and then ended up to RSA codes using python. Each an every line of code on every chapter is explained really well. The type of explanation given will leave nothing in doubt , specially when just referring to the book, as what usually happens with other books where many points are left taking it be obvious where many readers end up being stuck.

A very big thanks to the author , for

Excellent book for beginners and hobbyists because it teaches hands-on python skills while giving enough detail to understand the various codes yet not too technical so as to be overwhelming
