    1. Enjoyable book. I haven't seen the BBC series that this book is a companion to, but I do want to seek it out. A nice combination of history and anecdotes putting the development of codes and codebreaking in good perspective. Enough math detail to follow the major developments. Bonus points for the "homework" assignments at the end--five encoded messages of increasing difficulty levels that you can practice on.It's several years old now, but the "modern era" stuff is still interesting and relevan [...]

    2. I absolutely love this book. I read it after watching an interview with Simon Singh and was fascinated by espionage and cyphers.The book unveils a history of codes and code breaking, almost a cat and mouse adventure really where monumental moments relied on a crucial code either being broken or holding its integrity. As an engineer, I love all things mathematical. The Science of Secrecy was a captivating read. Although I suspect Simon set out to educate and tease, he has also created a dramatic [...]

    3. The book gives a brilliant overview of the history of cryptography and explains all types of cryptographic methods that emerged ever since the ancient times. These were layman explanations, hence i comprehended all of it. If you're learning about cryptography for the first time, go ahead and read it!

    4. Great book! Well written, and well thought out. Definitely worth reading as a popular introduction to the field.
