"As gripping as a good thriller." --The Washington
Post

Unpack the science of secrecy and discover the methods
behind cryptography--the encoding and decoding of information--in this
clear and easy-to-understand young adult adaptation of the national
bestseller that's perfect for this age of WikiLeaks, the Sony hack, and
other events that reveal the extent to which our technology is never
quite as secure as we want to believe.

Coders and
codebreakers alike will be fascinated by history's most mesmerizing
stories of intrigue and cunning--from Julius Caesar and his Caeser
cipher to the Allies' use of the Enigma machine to decode German
messages during World War II.
Accessible, compelling, and timely,
The Code Book is sure to make readers see the past--and the
future--in a whole new way.
"Singh's power of explaining complex
ideas is as dazzling as ever." --The Guardian
