  • My 10yr old is fascinated with spies, codes, etc It appealed to both of us and had a good balance of pictures and text.




  • Really interesting book but the format is incredibly dense and it being a large, heavy coffee table book means I can't carry it around easily. So I didn't finish it before having to take it back to the library and I already have an assortment of dense books on my coffee table so reluctantly giving it up, but I wish someone would create an Instagram account and send out the various codes in bite-sized snippets.


  • This is a perfect coffee table book, to leave around and browse through from time to time.I have to admit I didn't really read carefully all the text and information. I did look at all the illustrations though--everyone is sure to find something of interest, and also to learn or see something new. Actual ciphers and secret codes, language, writing, signing, signalling, magic, mysticism and religion, science and math, sociology, psychology, music, literature, art and war: all kinds of communicati [...]


  • The chronological use of symbols throughout history is the main theme of this book. A balance of images and text, the book certainly sparks curiosity. Its weakness? Lack of depth.


  • This is more of an encyclopedia than a book-to-read. It was really interesting but there is SO much information it will hurt your brain. Its a keep-on-the-shelf for research book.


  • Lots of great pictures. If you are looking for small snippets of interesting information about the history of codes this is a fun book to read. Typically, 2 pages are devoted to each topic.





  • Has comprehensive material for every code even down to dress, behavior, etc. I wasn't too crazy about being 'educated' about some cult stuff so I skimmed through the book.
