If you are new to cryptography,
you can make a good start by reading Crypto by
Steven Levy. The book is fun read, tells about the lives of the
people who made cryptographic discoveries, and along the way
you know why the knapsack problem and many other fun and entertaining
math problems are central to cryptography.
Next, you may want to jump
straight to the surprisingly easy and fun basic math. Modern
cryptography is based upon decision problems, meaning problems
that have an answer or either yes, no, or "I can't tell!!!"
"Computers and Intractability: A Guide to the Theory of
NP-Completeness" is brilliant, yet easy to read and understand.
