Based on Singh's excellent adult title The Code Book, this "Young Readers Edition" doesn't talk down to its audience. In fact, most of the text here appeared in the original book, though some sections, paragraphs, and sentences are omitted and an occasional word is simplified. Trimmed down from the original 402-page volume, this version offers young people a fascinating introduction to the underlying principles, the intriguing history, and the possible future of codes, including the issues and challenges of encrypted Internet communication. Black-and-white illustrations include diagrams and contemporary photographs as well as reproductions of period photos, engravings, documents, and artifacts. A challenging, but fascinating introduction to codes. This is a must read for anyone who is interested in the science of breaking hacking or making code. I highly recommend.

If I could get ten books on my nook this would be number five or six. A fifth grade girl in Indiana.
