Great explanation of encryption for those new to the topic!

I also found "The Code Book" to be an interesting read. It includes descriptions of how different types of ciphers work and the evolution of cryptography itself, starting with the Ceasar cipher and explaining significant developments in cryptography up to Quantum proof ciphers.

Did you know that Turing was not the first person to crack ciphertext created by the enigma machine?

Here is a link to the book if anyone is interested:
