Review on the book: Introduction to Codes and Ciphers:
A great reference for several different cipher types, including there history and mechanics. The author also includes some famous unsolved ciphers and then even has a puzzle in the back of the book. The best books have replay value, and this one will serve as a one stop shop for all things codes and cipher
Review on the book: Armchair Treasure Hunts: I first got involved in treasure hunts with Forrest Fenn's - "The Thrill of the Chase". I have had a ton of fun trying to decode his poem to find his treasure hidden at the end of the rainbow. As a fan of Fenn's, I was intrigued when a book that contained all of the clues that have been posted on mysteriouswritings would be in book form.
Little did I know that when I started reading this book, I would soon find other real life treasure hunts! This book is so much fun! I have never done another treasure hunt before and this book is opening up my eyes to a whole other world. The book is very well written and I love solving the clues as I read along. Who knows, I might even walk away with some money! Even if I don't solve the treasure hunt, I'm having a lot of fun learning lots of new things. For me, that has always been the thrill of the chase!
If you are a Fenn hunter or just an armchair treasure hunter, I believe this book has lots of things to keep you interested! What are you waiting for? buy this book!
