The Code Book: The Evolution of Secrecy from Mary, Queen of Scots to Quantum Cryptography
what the others said
This book is one of the most highly-rated non-fiction books on Amazon, and for good reason. I won't reiterate the other reviews except to say that the clarity of presentation of complex material is extraordinary. The one caveat is that the book is now ten years old, so you'll need to look for something beyond this to bring you up to the present.

Heal your life with the principles shared in this book.
The wisdom Kevin shares in this book changed my life, literally. I heard Kevin speak on a conference call in the Summer of '09, and was so deeply touched and inspired by his story of how he came to know of the secret word "Genshai", which is the first word he describes in his book "Aspire". Genshai means to never treat anyone in a manner in which they feel small.....not anyone....not yourself. ...
