        Comments about oreilly Cryptography for Developers:

        The eBook is -NOT- a proper ebook, but is actually a scan. This makes the book inordinately difficult to use, and results in poor quality. It is also large in size, weighing in at 28.8mb.

        I cannot (at this point) weigh in on the material itself, only the medium.
