I bought this to learn the high level details/processes behind encryption and cryptography but after flipping through the detailed treatment of each, the book got really short, really fast. If you're looking for "Hey here's DES in a nutshell" then this book isn't for you. It is in the sense that the three paragraphs preceding the several-page detailed discussion of the DES algorithm are for you, but the rest isn't.
