I'm about 3/4ths of the way through The Code Book, and I'm even more amazed at how interesting the task of cryptohacking is, and how much easier it is for the experts to break things than I had ever imagined. Sure, some of it is brilliant strokes, and some of it is dumb luck, but the account of snapping the Enigma machines is a definite page-turner.
