This book is a total rip-off - someone should check on the author. Very few puzzles to solve and the ones he has used for examples (I found errors in 3 out of 4 example puzzles.) The rest of the book contains basic tips for cryptograms that he just jumbles up and makes hard for a beginner to understand. I bet he is laughing that he has sold as many books as he has.
