I believe it is important to add a quick disclosure that I am not in the IT field and my review is based on my personal interest on Cryptography.The title caught my attention, but I was hesitant and intimidated to purchase the book because I thought the content would be too complex for me to comprehend. After reading the description and several sample pages from the Kindle version, I went ahead and purchased the book. Needless to say, I believe the book is tailored for those who find the topic of Cryptography of interest and those new in the field of IT and security.At every turn, terminologies were explicitly defined. The author continues to reiterate the importance of these terms through the use of the highlighted Lingo box. I appreciate how a complex subject matter was streamlined into simplistic form that non-IT readers, such as myself can grasp and appreciate. Throughout the book, the author included In My Humble Opinion, an incorporation of his personal and professional views regarding the section discussed. In addition, the inclusion of brief side notes (In Actual Practice), assist the readers to relate the content covered to major historical events and its current application to modern technology. The author’s choice to include such stories facilitates the reader to appreciate the clear connection between theory and practice.There were a few errors in the book (as mentioned by a previous reviewer), along with the author’s choice of reusing several exact materials from the first chapter into the second. I found this a little confusing. If selected materials were essential, the author could restate them again in a different way.
