The book as a whole is divided into two major sections; the first is called The Entropy Concept in Probability Theory and the second is called On The Fundamental Theorems of Information Theory. Both of these were originally papers printed by academic journals in the Russian Language.

The book was interesting, but I did pick out another short one, this book was only 120 pages long. ( )
