Praise

"It would be hard to imagine a clearer or more fascinating presentation. . . . Mr. Singh gives cryptography not only its historical dimension but its human one." —The New York Times

"Entertaining and satisfying. . . . Offers a fascinating glimpse into the mostly secret competition between codemakers and codebreakers."        –USA Today

"An absorbing tale of codemaking and codebreaking over the centuries." —Scientific American

"Singh spins tales of cryptic intrigue in every chapter." —The Wall Street Journal
