it was ok
Read in July, 2009

This book is about a fascinating topic, but it's almost unbearable to read. Another well-written book on the subject, or an edited version of this that runs under 200 pages, would be a welcome alternative.

This NYT article discusses one of the artifacts that is featured prominently in this book. Maybe "The Lost Chalice" (mentioned in the article) is a better alternative get this story. The reviews of that book don't sound too promising either, though.
