I didn't read Hill's edition, but the text with a commentary written by William Turpin available here.

I enjoyed the work, although at times it becomes a bit tedious. It was much more fun when portraying speeches, etc., than when a list of "the count of such and such moved his troops here" kinds of things.

This is a good read for anybody who wants to study the crusades; however, there are serious doubts about whether it is what it claims to be - was it really written by a simple crusader knight, or is it more likely a piece of medieval propaganda?

I read its Arabic translation from Latin by Prof. Hassan Habashy of Ain Shams Faculty of Arts, Egypt. The translation is very good and scholarly. I hope I could read Latin to be able to read all the documents of the Crusades.
