There are a few nuggets of information that I found interesting in this brief survey of the Celtic religion, so it was not a complete waste to have read quickly through this material. Overall there was not a lot of new insight, perhaps because this book pre-dates many recent archeological finds or because much of this knowledge is commonplace.

A solid overview - hard to get into at times.
