Unfortunately, for someone without knowledge of Gaelic. it was almost impossible to pronounce the names and places referred to in the book. The extent of the impact of Irish scholars a nd learned clerics in ancient days was a revelation. It will open your eyes to the great history this nation has.
The best news is that this edition appears to have been completely recomposited, so the Kindle edition seems to have been generated from digital text, rather than from error-prone optical character recognition (OCR). I have a copy of a hard-cover edition, and although some of the decorative illustrations are amusing, I'm really glad that the current editors chose to get the text accurate rather than try to reproduce the appearance of an earlier edition.
