The only thing I don’t like about this book is the title, which was not the author’s choice. Like many publishers, the publishers of the Dummies series wanted to cash in on the Dan Brown pony, and chose a name to go along with that train of thought. Now that I’ve gotten that commentary out of the way, let me state that one should not be dissuaded from buying this book based on either the Templar Code or Dummies part of the title.

Christopher Hodapp, who is the author of Freemasons for Dummies and his co-author Alice von Kannon have produced a wonderful book on the history of the Templars and the crusades that is sure to be of value to those interested in learning more about the Knights Templar.

Hodapp and von Kannon not only cover this aspect of the subject, but also delve into the various neo-Templar Orders that exist today including the Freemasons and the SMOTJ.

Having served as technical editor on this book, I can tell you first hand that the authors went to an incredible amount of effort in researching the topic and those related to it. Templar Code for Dummies was the result and is a testament to their efforts.
