His latest book Crypto, won the grand eBook prize at the 2001 Frankfurt Book festival. In this book, Steven told how great ideas get to market and how they can be smothered in their crib by the government and, frankly, just bad management decisions. The main theme of the book is how the NSA tried to stifle new developments by the researchers, placing secrecy orders and classifying their patents and papers. Throughout the book, as Levy draws out the characters, it’s the crypto community vs. the government, until ultimately the cypherpunks win out.
