In this dual biography by James Reston, Jr, he chronologically tells the tale of the two men he writes of, in a way that reminds me more of a fictional historical novel than a history book written by a historical scholar. He takes too much of Roger of Howden's remark "that no bed separated them (Richard I and Philip II Augustus)". He also says William I of Sicily cried at the fall of Jerusalem and Joan, sister of Richard protested to being married to Al-Adil, Saladin's brother; both instances being a-historical. If you know your proper historical facts, this book might be a good place to start for a study of the rulers it speaks of and the Third Crusade, but not a good book for the scholarly student.
