I thought it was going to be about Celtic mythology, but it was more of a broken history of the Celtic peoples. it only very briefly touched on the religion, no telling of any stories.

What would have made Celtic Mythology and the Religion of the Ancient Celts better?
If they had included more mythology information.
Has Celtic Mythology and the Religion of the Ancient Celts turned you off from other books in this genre?
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Boredom. Too much analyzing of early languages and not enough interesting facts.

if you are looking for the actually stories/ myths of the ancient Celts then this isn't the one to get.
It was a history of the Celts and origins of the language and where they were from etc. Was still a pretty good listen!
Rather sadly in true American fashion the book contains small but damaging errors. I say damaging because students and American pagans then go on to expand on these inaccuracies causing even more erroneous confusion and arguments in future research! Sadly this subject has suffered a lot of misleading information sadly most from the US. There are errors in pronunciation of most names. This aside, if you know the pitfalls and mistakes, the book is fair but if you don't know the subject find a book of more academic research and authority.
