"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Some bad things about the book: If you are a beginner, go elsewhere or have more books ready to reference so you can understand what he is talking about. It was written before archaeology hit its heyday finding additional information about the early Celts that is not covered and may even contradict to a point the info here. Depending on the version bought, the info will be outdated and contradictory to newer research.
Some good things about the book: It gives an eclectic mix of info instead of history on just the Celts or the Druids. There is a wide diversity examined in Celtic worship but it is straightforward and does not view it through rose colored glasses. You can learn about their history on magic, rebirth and migration. There is lots of documentation so it is possible to look up the references yourself and do additional research..
I would recommend this if you are interested in a deeply involved view of the ancient Celts .While it is a long read, it is well worth the time. I had no idea how convoluted and complex their culture and society was, but I do now - wonderful, but in some respects a hard way of life.
