Three hours in, and there has been scant discussion of knights or their code, only passing references that seemed to have been incidental. It was certainly not the point of the book. The book comes across as a long speech one might hear at a Promise Keeper's convention. If that sort of "modern Christian man" viewpoint book is what you are looking for, this might be a fine choice. It simply wasn't what I was expecting from a book titled "The Knight's Code".
The book was a disappointment. Assertions were made without bothering to cite any relevant data or statistics to support the assertions (e.g., about rampant racism and low levels of racial intermarriage in United States). Statements were made and simply left there (e.g., about the inevitable failure of austerity measures, while failing to make a counterproposal about where the loaves and fishes would come from to support the social spending). Failure to understand crucial social trends were also made (e.g., statements about ethnic groups moving into Western countries and not being allowed to assimilate in and not seeking social safety net supports, when in fact many individuals within such groups not only actively seek social support but also actively avoid assimilating and prefer to remain within their cultural enclaves and maintain traditions that are at odds with the cultural values of the country to which they have moved). Overall, a book of assertions without a great deal of support.
