Cryptography Theory and Practice

Douglas R. Stinson, “Cryptography Theory and Practice Second Edition” (Boca Raton: Chapman & Hall/CRC, 2002)

Technical reading about this topic. Haven’t actually read the last page of the last chapter, but have read enough to consider to have finished it. If you aren’t convinced that public key infrastructure really works or want to know how secure encryption is, then this is a good book.

Every Living Thing

Rob Dunn, “Every Living Thing, Man’s Obsessive Quest to Catalog Life, from Nanobacteria to New Monkeys,” (New York: Harper Collins, 2009)

Written by a professor in our department. I learned more from this book about zoology thanĀ  a college graduate should.
