Templar Code For Dummies

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.

Nobly Born

There is an amazing amount of information in this little book, and some very fine illustrations as well. The book is the work of a scholar (who also happens to be a very good writer) and avoids sensationalism – and the story is sensational enough by itself.
