For instance, it discusses how normal text can be converted into equally-probable string of a certain fixed length.
However, of the vast field of error-correcting codes, this book covers just Hamming codes. In general, it is thin on mathematical details and some of the explanations are poor. For instance, Gray codes are never defined, but rather prosented as an example which is then poorly explained.
