I loved this book. Mr. Kippenhahn's use of historical antecdotes and relating each technique to its predecessors allows anyone -- technically minded or not -- to be drawn into his unfolding story. The fact that he presents the mathematics in an easy to understand yet thorough manner makes it especially enjoyable for readers who want to understand each principle. Having read it from cover to cover, I intend to read it again, and spend more time on a few techniques that I brushed over on the [...]

Bought this book Thursday 23 Sept in Baton Rouge, Lousiana, and throroughly enjoyed reading it from start to end within the next 36 hours on the long way home to Sweden. Recommended for eveybody who wants a "flying start" into the cryptologi subject. My next action is to download PGP!

I wanted to understand cryptology, with enough math behind various techniques and yet I don't want to be bored with the details. This book delivers.The entertaining historical stories are icing on the cake and make it hard to put down.

Rudolf Kippenhahn wrote this in German, it was translated into English by Ewald Osers. Mathematician Kippenhahn wrote this very readable book because of his interest in cryptology. It covers a very technical subject and makes it easy to understand for the average reader. The German authorship gives it a viewpoint that differs from the American or English books on this subject. Most of the chapters run about 20 pages. Only a few books are listed for further reading.The short chapters and the well [...]

Code Breaking is a riveting read, replete with historical references ranging from Thomas Jefferson's wheel to the German Enigma. Caesar. Galileo. Edgar Allen Poe. Sherlock Holmes's . Mary Queen of Scots. Vigenere tableau.If you are delving into cryptology, add this book to your library it is well written and organized. Rudolf Kippenhahn's passion for the subject is infectious.My only question for the author is: Why haven't you cracked Kryptos?(the still unsolved puzzle in front of the CIA headq [...]

I'm not sure why a previous review written by me on this book showed only one star, but that is an error. This is a 4-star book. Here is my previous review:Mr. Kippenham has written a thoroughly enjoyable book! I've read a great many books on Cryptology, and while his book won't make you an expert, it gives descriptions and explanations superior to many other "beginner texts". In fact, the explanation of the mathematics involved in RSA encryption is the most lucid and easy to understand that I h [...]

It is very difficult to find a book on the subject of Cryptology which does not go into great detail about the math, forgoing the necessary context to understanding. I have read many book on the subject and wish I had read this one first, if not early on.Kippenhahn has accomplished that which others haven't. Providing the historical context based upon a particular crypto advancement. Instead of the entire history of the subject, he provides sections of chapters which focus on some aspect of t [...]
