Recommends it for: People studying Celtic legend

This is a good overview, primarily of British and Irish myths and legends. I myself am exploring Irish mythology and appreciated being able to rise above the trees to see the forest, determining where I'll go next in my explorations. I also enjoyed seeing the ties between Irish and English folk legends, especially Arthurian stories. I listened to an audio book but I think I'd like to get a hard copy I can go back to and look things up in.
