maybe too abstract for some readers

The theory of error correcting codes is a foray into number theory. It can be very abstract. And this might be the problem that some readers will have with the book. The discussion involves finite field theory and key ideas like permutations. All this is necessary to understand the topic. But for students lacking a strong theoretical background in maths, getting to hands on manipulations and getting a strong intuitive understanding of the codes can be difficult. Each chapter does have an extended exercise set. Which is good. But the exercises themselves are also quite abstract.
