This unique collection of fascinating codebreaking puzzles offers the ultimate test for a would-be code-cracking expert. Often called the father of modern computing, the book is inspired by the genius of Alan Turing and proudly supports The Turing Trust, the charity set up by Turing's closest family in his memory.
The wide range of cryptic puzzles, accompanied by enigmatic clues as well as hints and step-by-step solutions, is compiled by world-renowned puzzle expert Dr Gareth Moore. It is designed to give the solver an unparalleled and hugely enjoyable challenge, and perhaps the chance to see if they might have been recruited to join the ranks of Alan Turing's codebreakers! It contains a range of different types of puzzles, and so presents a wonderfully entertaining challenge for any puzzle lover. The puzzles are arranged by level of difficulty and become progressively harder, so you can start with the (relatively) easy ones and build up to the truly expert level tests.
The Turing Trust was set up in 2009 by Alan Turing's closest family and is proud to be able to commemorate his remarkable contribution to the early years of computing and to contribute to the future of computer science by supporting people in rural African communities to become computer literate. The foreword to the book is written Sir Dermot Turing, Alan Turing's nephew and a trustee of The Turing Trust.
