PDF and eBook version of "A non-mathematical introduction to one-way functions and their use in securing passwords"

My four blog posts on this subject (starting here) have been very popular with well over 100,000 page views in four days. Because of their popularity, and because some people may wish to share the story of Alice and Bob in a different format I've put together an 11 page PDF and eBook containing and edited, illustrated and slightly expanded version of the posts.

You can buy it for $1.99 as a PDF or as ePub. It's 11 pages of detailed explanation for less than a latte!

It's for sale, rather than free, as a way of supporting this blog. There are no ads here and I intend to keep it that way.

Any chance of an epub version? Or a recommendation for a pdf -> epub converter that doesn't annihilate the formatting?

I've made an ePub version for you.
