The Code Book by by Simon Singh (6/40)

No Title

No Description

This isn’t a Computer Science book per se- but I recommend it to all my friends who are even slightly interested in the field. This is because it delves into one of the hottest, most relevant sub-fields of Computer Science today- cryptography. 

The term might evoke images of spies in smoke-filled cellars in Vienna or Berlin during the Cold War, but in today’s world, cryptography and codebreaking is all about mathematics and computer science. 

It’s a fun read for history buffs and Computer Scientists alike, and gives a glimpse into how Computer Science changed the course of the 20th century.
