  • Review: Praise for the First Edition:
    ...Mollin has written a readable text on a subject that can be challenging. It deserves your attention.
    - The Cryptogram

    This is a great book! It can be used in many ways: for a university course at one extreme, and as selective light reading for pleasure at the other. The author's enthusiasm carries the reader along clearly and easily, spilling over to scores of fascinating, beautifully written footnotes, which include more than fifty mini-biographies. ... excellent and highly recommended.
    -Short Book Reviews, Vol. 21, No. 2, August 2001

    I want to congratulate you on An Introduction to Cryptography. This is a fine addition to the field. Upon my recommendation, my personal firm has purchased several copies, it's so great. ... Your explanation in the section of 'Coin Flipping via Exponentiation' was brilliantly orchestrated.
    -Owen Henry Cupp, Southern Sovereign Institute, Georgia, USA

    In this very nice book, the author introduces at an undergraduate level the following topics: Origins, computer arithmetic, and complexity ... . This book pays a lot of attention to the history of this research field, which makes the reading very enjoyable...
