This book served more as a reference guide for a short story I was writing. Most of us are familiar with the Roman and Greek gods, but Celtic? I wanted to draw from lesser-known entities.

In the future, if ever needing to tap into Celtic gods, demi-gods, or Demi Moore-gods, I'll grab this little

Worthy addition to anyone's reference libra ...more

He is the respected author of more than thirty books, and is now writing on the Chinese empire, from the history of which he considers one can learn as much about leadership as from Ashridge or Harvard.
