It is interesting to note where people get their sources for the things they put in their books on the crusades. And how the sources sometimes differ from what you read on modern re-tellings.

Worth the effort if you really interested in the subject. Rodney Stark's book A Case for the Crusades is what sparked my interest and drove me to read this.
