    What a Great book:

    I see that the two previous people to respond did not like this book or the first one. Yes it is hard to follow if you do not research what you don't know. For me it was a lot, however it opened many doors for me to research other topics, I do highly recomend this book.

    Not Worth Reading

    This book is a very poor follow-up of the book 'Holy Blood, Holy Grail' by the same authors. 'Holy Blood, Holy Grail' presents substanial amounts of opinion and speculation as fact. 'Messianic Legacy' does nothing to correct that failure while adding virtually nothing of substance.

    Utterly pointless and incomprehensible

    After reading 'The Da Vinci Code', I read the book 'Holy Blood, Holy Grail', which Dan Brown mentioned in 'Code'. 'Holy Blood, Holy Grail', which is essentially a documentation on the development of a theory, was difficult to read and nearly incomprehensible at times. 'The Messianic Legacy' is even worse. It is pointless and was probably written to cash in on 'Holy Blood, Holy Grail'. People always say a sequel rarely lives up to the original. In this case, the original wasn't good to begin with--in 'Holy Blood, Holy Grail', the authors never provide concrete evidence for their conclusions, just an endless link of coincidences--but 'The Messianic Legacy' is a mess of half-baked and unrelated hypotheses. While the book has its moments, overall, it's completely pointless and even irrational at times. One is never sure what the authors are talking about or how one idea connects to another. This book is like reading leftovers from the brainstorming sessions of 'Holy Blood, Holy Grail'. More like the lunatic ravings of a right-wing conspiracy theorist, 'The Messianic Legacy' is 'National Enquirer' disguised as serious nonfiction.
