Back in the ’90s, the MBA crew often had a secret code built into the table of contents. The idea was the brainchild of then-editor Richard Cunningham. Sorry, Richard, if you’re reading this, but we’re going to blow your secret after more than 20 years of silence.

Have fun looking at your old issues now that you can crack the code.
