I'm guessing OP's referring to "Applied Cryptography, 2nd Edition".
There was one page on elliptical curve cryptography, and it didn't
give any real information on what it was, what problem it uses (the
discrete logarithm problem), how it's used, or how DH is adapted to
use it.  The book was pretty much entirely against software patents,
and because ECC had been freshly patented it seemed to be much more
scary about the topic than it should have been.
