Glad that I am reading it in conjunction with a class and other books / journals. So much information is all packed in a small book that is a little confusing. If you already have some background in the Celts and the different periods it is probably a quick read. I find that that I have reread all the chapters to clearly understand the transitions being expressed.

This book was chock full of a broad range of information and was helpful in defining terms and periods. My main complaint is that the transition-less structure made it very difficult to follow at times (although that was a helpful reminder of how fluid the borrowing and melding of time and styles was in Celtic art). Also, I nearly always wanted just a bit more on each piece.

A quick read but definitely a book full of good information on Celtic Art. The only problem I found was that it was such a little book filled with so much information that was squished all together. Maybe a bigger book would have been a better choice...

A very good resource, but mind-numbingly academic. Do not read unless you're writing something equally intellectual.
