About Secrets of the Code

Secrets of the CodeThe World’s Bestselling and Most Authoritative Guide
 to The Da Vinci Code Phenomenon

Every once in a while a cultural phenomenon hits like a firestorm, taps our collective curiosity and starts a public debate. The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown has accomplished that with brilliance. If you’re like millions of readers, you devoured The Da Vinci Code and closed the book with a spinning head full of questions. Was Mary Magdalene really the wife of Jesus? Did Leonardo actually hide this information in his masterpiece The Last Supper? And what’s the real story behind all those secret societies with their famous members and sacred sex rites?

Dan Burstein—renowned author, successful businessman and armchair scholar—was left with the same burning desire for answers after reading The Da Vinci Code. So he hit the books, tapped his network and, with his writing and business partner Arne de Keijzer, assembled an all-star cast which contributed its expertise to Secrets of the Code: The Unauthorized Guide to the Mysteries Behind The Da Vinci Code. It’s the most authoritative guidebook to The Da Vinci Code available as well as a New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and Publisher’s Weekly and worldwide bestseller.

The intent of Secrets of the Code is to give readers a wide range of perspectives, from original sources, about the fascinating ideas and issues presented in The Da Vinci Code—Mary Magdalene and her relationship to Jesus, the little-known story of Christianity’s early development, the mystery of signs and symbols, the occult, Leonardo da Vinci, Opus Dei, the Holy Grail, Gnosticism, etc.—and thereby help satisfy the curiosity people experience after reading The Da Vinci Code.

Secrets of the Code is the ideal companion for the continuing tidal wave of public discussion and debate about the issues raised in The Da Vinci Code now that it is a film as well. Once again television and the media will be full of programs and articles related to all the subjects that The Da Vinci Code has brought to the forefront.

Plugged into this huge collective conversation and contribute your two cents worth: read the new paperback edition of Secrets of the Code: The Unauthorized Guide to the Mysteries Behind The Da Vinci Code. It includes new revelations and discoveries and a range of fresh articles and authoritative interviews, from a Da Vinci Code tour of the Louvre to a mini-biography of Dan Brown.
